Where are You and YOUR democracy?

Today many powerful minor dictators have been created. They appear in all walks of life from minor bureaucrats who are supposed to serve the public (in  reality they often merely support corrupt administrations and their personal paypackets). Agencies supposed to protect the public such as police and intelligence agencies, governments that have slowly become uncontrolled dictatorships. Businesses and financial institutions ignoring sound rules of management and trading practice in favour of short term gain and avaricious advantage from falsehood. Countries that are allowing the wholesale sublimation of their culture in favour of other already failed commercially driven worthless substitutes that often result in not only the extinction of the original culture but also the creation of populations subservient to worthless ideals that are ersatz and even injurious to humanity.
