We shall not let democracy die
Yonatan Zunger

It’s not democracy that’s dying, it’s actually on the rise. Trump, Erdogan, Putin and Duterte were all elected democratically. It’s liberal democracy that’s being eroded. (That’s ‘liberal’ in the original meaning, BTW, not the one used in the US) and it’s happening in more places than the US alone.
