Shameful U-turn an act of cowardice in a bogus democracy
Irish politicians have for decades offered a version of democracy and policy making to the people of Ireland that masks reality in a cloak of concern and transparency, with the support of the manufactured media the illusion is offered that democracy is at the forefront of all matters relating to the very people these politicians claim to represent, however that cloak slips aside from time to time, just as Dorothy in the wizard of Oz pulled back the curtain to find that there was no wizard we find that there is no democracy.
So is Finian McGrath to blame?
What ever your views on the controversial vaccine Gardasil, the elephant in the room is, we live in a bogus democracy. Finian McGrath and his likes are victims of this duplicity in a political system that is controlled by external elements and vested interests, this has been obvious to the casual observer of Irish politics since the foundation of the state, this is also reinforced by the European Union and their agenda that supports corporate interests above the wellbeing of the same causal observers who sit idly by and allow the continuance of this bogus democracy, as do all other mainstream parties bar none.
What must we do to end this cycle of mistrust, dishonesty, and coercion?
How can we as a nation mend this broken corruptible political system? Remember, whatever side you are on, what ever stance you take on any issue, at some stage you will be on the wrong side of this bogus democracy. What we need is a system were the people have the final say, a system that would see democracy on demand and not restricting us to a vote once every 5 years as our current system dictates. There is another system, a system of democracy that removes, as Dorothy did to the wizard of Oz, the vail of secrecy that cloaks the bogus democracy we live in, and removes the disease of corruption. This fair and accountable system works well in other countries, it is called Direct Democracy.
