At a concert on Saturday night, he said to his live audience:
“Democracy is under attack. It’s under attack in every country in the world. It’s in grave danger of being lost unless we defend it.”
“The alternative to democracy is a nightmare, a prison, of the mind. That alternative is tyranny. All tyranny is based on a lie. The greater the tyranny, the bigger the lie.”
“Disagree with the tyrant and you risk imprisonment, torture and death. Yet that is what we must do, all of us. We must protect our right to speak the truth.”
“The war in the Ukraine is an absurdity, based upon a lie. If we swallow that lie, the lie will eat us. The lie is terrified of the truth.”
“We must not lose this battle”.
If you haven’t realised it yet, we are currently witnessing the loss of democracy as we know it. Humanity is literally welcoming tyranny as it rolls out to every corner of the world. Most people are too gutless to do anything about it and then pretend everything is okay.
If you keep pretending nothing is happening then humanity is in for some seriously rough times ahead!
