The Tiny Dot
Even though the video references US, it’s a good representation of how things are run around the world. The majority voted for their representatives then ask for permission to do some things.
Sometimes, they will be changes made. Oftentimes only a bit or nothing will be done. The usual excuse is that it’s not good for the general public, etc.
It comes to the point where the citizens get fed-up and when the elections come about will vote for another.
And the funny thing is that, the cycle repeats again.
The government is to serve the interest of the people and should be afraid of the people and not the other way round.
