To a large extent we are handcuffed by our reverence for democracy. We have what renowned psychiatrists have openly admitted is a crazy man leading the country. On one hand responsible people want this guy removed from office pronto. But then we say, but he was duly elected by the people, we can’t do that. We are thus paralized because of this factor and partisan politics from doing anything to remedy our extremely dangerous situation.
