Day (15 January 2021, 10:39 AM)
Day. Not night, when the stars do shine
It's day. Only the Sun greets us now
Clouds cover her gleeful smile, lest she
Seem too joyous in this crazy world.
Day. Not dawn, when birds do fly
And Morning Star Venus steals the show
Guiding those birds to southern skies
Before disappearing under the horizon.
Day. Not dusk, when at last the moon
Can show her glorious luminance, the tides
Bow to her temptations and sway. And we
Admire the twilight's velvet dance.
But if the nation is in chaos due to democracy, is it the duty of the military to reinstate order, if it is 100% certain that it is for the betterment of the people and not for personal gain?
The issue is that it's rare for democracy to return without either a long transition or being rebuilt by foreign powers. The United States could have become a monarchy with few people acting differently, the French revolution went eventually to a monarchy (which then got turned into specifically a kingdom); various places have set up elections after a revolution just to rig them. A democracy should only be taken down when it stops acting as a democracy, but it's difficult to have any country have no elements of authoritarianism.
OK, just don't shut down the government for it.
Hmmm....what would that accomplish?
