You can't stop the river

Artless
This issue is about how people murdering democracy pretend to be concerned about democracy when they encounter free speech.

What really gets in the way of development?
A lot of people wailing about how street protests are bad for democracy are dishonest. Because they clearly don’t give a rat’s ass about why such protests become necessary. If they did, they would spare a thought for laws being passed in Parliament without debate and discussion.
Democracy is a conversation between the governors and the governed. If the governed are not allowed to speak through their representatives in Parliament, they will obviously speak in other ways such as street protests.
To have a problem with protests but not with illegal methods being employed in Parliament is not concern for democracy. It’s the desire to expedite its demise.
The Parliament is more than just a building. It’s a way of doing things. To focus on the brick and mortar instead of the spirit of things is dangerously stupid at best and willful destruction of democracy at worst.
The river WILL flow. If you don’t want it to spill over the banks and wash away your brittle glass palaces, stop interrupting the river’s flow. Your lamentations about “this is not what the river is supposed to do” are laughable. Perhaps even dishonest.
