I say all the time America has never had a democracy and people completely ignore it. My sister has worked in intelligence and based on our very vague discussions surrounding freedom it's safe to assume we have no freedom. Every move we make is monitored. From banking, mobile devices, electronics, cellphones, police driving around collecting license plates to store...democracy never was. We also never have been free.
We've been living in tyranny. I loved this piece. It's sad that people stay so long when wrong begins happening.
