Thanks for the time, the clarification. Well said.
The forces are not evenly distributed, globally, of course. US hegemony, the police state mentality, is not yet as severe in Canada as in the UK. Tomorrow? We get to see.
Point taken, though. We need all to work toward something closer to real democracy. I fear we may not have much time. But I'm old -- my concern is for my grandchildren, everyone of their generation.
Criticizing. Well, no, I don't blame the citizens of the US but if there is to be change they and those of your country will have to demand it. They may not. My country may well slide down that same slope.
