Storming the barricades

Wow, it’s actually happening today. A group of people are trying to stop the democratic handover from one duly elected administration to the next.

They are literally trying to storm the barricades to invade the Capitol building. I would not have expected that anyone would be so stupid as to lightly throw away the democratic process. Democracy may be messy, but it’s a whole lot better than any of the alternatives.

These people may be under the impression that living in a functioning democracy is a natural right, rather than a hard-won privilege. If so, I invite them to try living in an actual fascist dictatorship, and find out first-hand about the alternative.
