We live in the 21st century when the democracy rules and every citizen in the world have the right to his own opinion, right? Wrong! Insider Monkey tracked down 15 countries with dictatorships today (or on their way to dictatorships) so let’s check their research out.
Our ancestors gave their lives to make this world a better place for us. Instead of walking around with our heads high, we are again, like 200 years ago, putting our heads in bags and trying our best not to mess with the government. They gave us the right to vote. They gave us the right to our opinion. But it means nothing if our opinion is different than theirs. We can fight, but we are definitely going to lose.
I know what the majority of you is going to say: because of the attitude that I just presented, the world functions like that. But, trust me, if someone is not a pessimist, that’s me. But I am a realist. I know and I see how the system works. We hate each other for no reason at all. We hate each other because our leaders tell us so and because other leaders are talking about us. But why don’t we let them fight their own battles? They say that this is for our own good. But we all know that this isn’t the case here. We are like sheep lead by blind people. And not just that we don’t have the real right to vote, but we shouldn’t talk against anyone higher positioned than us or else we are going to suffer the consequences.
Each new leader makes us fight their battles. Hitler even made the whole nation to kill people that he hated, even though none of them ever said anything against him. Actually, he had the Jewish blood and everyone knew about it. But he still decided that he can play the God and start the ethnical cleaning. And, just because he was the head of Germany, everyone looked at him as the real God. And even German people couldn’t talk against him or else they would be tortured and killed. Even though it happened more than 50 years ago, the times haven’t really changed. The only thing that is different is the technology they are using. And we are allowing it. We are all going toward those old days and these 15 countries with dictatorships today (or on their way to dictatorships) are winning the battle.
