SONNET TO EGALITARIANISM

– Democracy expires when autocracy thrives

“Democracy, the government of the people, by the people, for the people, dies when a dictator takes control. Democracy lives by the grace of the institutions that nurture it with checks and balances. When a despot becomes the head, he/she bullies and chokes life out of the institutions that sustain democracy. The totalitarian sucks up and usurps the authorities of those institutions, for promoting ONLY his/her own interests, as long as circumstances permit. Autocracy is the antithesis of Democracy.” – Dele Ajaja
