Democracy of USA
All the founders of the US Constitution and even our own framers from the Constituent Assembly must be squirming in their graves, on what is playing out in the US.
The largest democracy, India, witnessed doomsday on June 25, 1975, when the democracy was crushed by India’s PM Indira Gandhi by declaring emergency, & 45 years later, the doomsday emerged for the oldest, but now badly bruised and damaged, democracy- the USA.
Often it so happened that Governments which wanted to make democracy relevant and thriving found themselves handicapped by the very edicts of the democracy and democracy too in turn many a times suffered at the hands of governments who were too meek to do the needful to make the Democracy relevant.
No matter what, whoever wins the POTUS prize, purportedly the most powerful office in the universe, be it Donald J Trump or Joe Biden, American democracy is unlikely to have won.
The national or international briefing on 22nd April, 2020, of the Coronavirus White House Task Force with President Donald J Trump, in attendance, has reinforced the belief that Democracy is here to stay. It is not going anywhere. Covid-19 or not.
