Dictatorship and tyranny prevail

Black Thursday. The amount to be cut is ginormous and the poor won't be spared. And despite the views of a learned judge, democracy will be denied to three other representative-less constituencies and our taxes and courts cynically used to that end.
History teaches us that a power that would drive those in poverty into penury is a tyrannical one. It also teaches us that a power that denies people democracy is a dictatorial one.
We, for our sins it seems, have the worst of all worlds -- a tyrannical dictatorship.
