Whatever Happened to "Democracy"?By Harley Schlanger
We will continue supporting the war in Ukraine "no matter what my German voters think." This comment, by German Foreign Minister Baerbock, was uttered as support for her coalition government is plunging, and as hardships imposed on her "German voters" are escalating, along with the danger of a nuclear World War III. This is "democracy"? Biden's calling opponents of his government's war and austerity policy "semi-fascists" is another example of anti-democratic rhetoric and police state measures being used to silence opposition.
