happy#052 – democracy
Nowadays I often hear say that we don’t really live in a democracy because there is no real choice. I very clearly want to disagree.
Just the other day we had to American guests at the lodge and they were pointing out thing that are not going right in America. With a lot of their concern if not most they were right.
But I absolutely did not agree with the consequence they drew from their frustration.
They believe that the USA are not a democracy and that your vote doesn’t count because there are multinationals and media who influence you in their own interest.
I can understand that tendency but in the end, it is always up to yourself. You decide what you believe. You decide what you buy and you decide who you vote for.
