Democracy for the people, or anarchy for its representatives

Democracy for the people, or anarchy for its representatives

In the philosophical dictionary and that of the Albanian language, it has been commented on what we should understand by the word democracy, which traces its origin to ancient Greece. In them, it is clarified that by the word democracy we must understand: the political system, in which power is exercised by the people, or its representatives, that is, those voted by the people. That part of the beginning, the political system, which is exercised by the people, was, is and will be only a fraud, because in no historical period has the people led, not even in Greece itself, where this word originates, but pronounced in every political system known to mankind. The state has been run by a group of people, who are elected by the people, they speak in the name of the people, and time has shown and proven that they have looked at their interests first, even though they often say that we are the people's representatives. The word democracy was also used during socialism. It was written everywhere, especially on the buildings of the Executive Committees: "Power comes from the people and belongs to the people." To this beautiful word, democracy, the word socialist was added later, baptizing it: Socialist Democracy, or Democracy of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. We heard two types of democracy, socialist and capitalist democracy. The two democracies opposed each other even though they had the same origin. Over the years, the term socialist democracy was very rarely mentioned and pronounced, socialist society. Only in socialist societies - it was said - is the people the one who runs the state, because they enjoy all the freedoms: to speak, to be elected and to choose, before the law everyone is equal, the leading cadres are accountable to the people. In order to make it concrete, or to show that it is the people who lead, several tricks were invented such as: accountability to the people, worker and cooperative control, which even when implemented were formal... In fact, at first glance, it seemed as if the people were in charge. There were dismissals of leaders in state institutions, in enterprises and agricultural cooperatives, because this is how the workers' or cooperative's measure reasoned and decided. They also appointed in the direction what the collective proposed, but with the consent of the party. In the elections for the popular councils and deputies, two candidacies were proposed. In 95%, the first candidacies won. In appearance, it seemed that the people chose them, but the proposals were made by the party through representatives of the Democratic Front. In conclusion; there were formalities, but there was no anarchy. The courts were more correct. The people were aware that there was only one institution that decided, the Political Bureau, even a single person. With the change of the system, the word democracy entered the everyday vocabulary of the people and began to be pronounced by every citizen and peasant, showing even more pride than when they pronounced the word communism. The slogan "Freedom and democracy" was heard in all four corners of Albania. Very communist, between them and 35-year-old veterans in that party, "analyzing" the mistakes made in that system, to which they dedicated their lives, aligned themselves with the right and called themselves democrats, because this epithet should now be enjoyed by those who militate with the right ..The expression I am a democrat meant that you were drained from all four sides as a person. The day before he was called a black raven, because he said "I am a communist", while the next day he woke up clear as crystal, because he said: "I am a democrat". It was thought that no negative vice would exist in democracy, from which actions and attitudes in his life the democratic state is like crystal. Those who were put in charge of the democratic state, from the base to the dome, were fighting to benefit as much as possible from the privatization of the common property and they did not succeed The worker, who had worked for so many years, sat under the shade of the trees and watched the democrats, or the communists turned into democrats, how they grew fat. All the peasants, even those who had left for the cities, began to shout, not only "Freedom, democracy." but also "my land!". This democracy, the political system in which power is "exercised" by the people, has been 32-33 years since the villages have not been given their land, nor are they recognized as their property, nor their houses, which they built with the sweat of immigrant children. Our children fled to emigration young and are coming back old, but they still can't get their hands on the property legalization document. We held out hope for justice, as the crystal democrats spoke to us, but we cried from the rain and fell into the hail. We are not equal before the law. The "right" was earned by the money. Money even requires 2-3 owners on a piece of land. The trials continue for years and in the end he wins with 5-6 portfolios. Judges, prosecutors and lawyers of democratic justice began to multiply their wealth tenfold, while the common people who call "Freedom democracy" began to multiply their years to solve their problems. With the word democracy, the people are deceived, propagandizing it as the best political system, which is run and decided by the people, but in fact the rich, who are called capitalists, run it. Even the justice that has kidnapped the people, together with the "crystal democrats", the decisions are approved for "the people", they are given in the name of the people, they speak in the name of the people, whose property is not returned, but what he thinks is stolen from him has his own. The democratic state, its institutions do not respect those who boast that they brought democracy. State institutions in democracy should be respected only by the common people. How can we say that we have a democratic system, that in this particular case we are governed by the representatives of the people (deputies), when the very temple in which democracy is built and preserved, the Assembly, is an anarchy, is on fire? The question arises, does democracy mean a political system that belongs to and is decided by the people, or an anarchy system?
