The United States was under attack this week. Pro- #Trumprioters forced their way past #CapitolPolice, on one side of the building, who were diligently defending our Nation’s Capitol. Elsewhere they were assisted and encouraged by rogue members of Capitol Police in their assault on the building.
Old white men stood in our nation’s #Capitolbuilding and smoked marijuana, while Black men stand in prison RIGHT NOW, for the very same substance. This is America

Why does this threaten democracy? Why is the internet to blame? Why is big tech to blame? Why should the President be removed ASAP?
Why does this threaten Democracy:
The people chose Joe Biden. A sitting President (directly or not) incited an attack on a congressional proceeding that would certify the election results of his successor. In history eyes can that be reviewed as an attempted coup. The United States placed rules for a transfer of power every 4 years. They did not explicitly mention a peaceful transfer of power, which Donald Trump is attempting to exploit. If it were successful, democracy would have fallen.
Why is the internet to blame? Why is a big Tech to blame?
Why do these people believe Donald Trump won the election when the greater population of the United States understands reality. Have you ever looked at someone else’s Facebook page besides your own? You will notice an entirely foreign world that feels absolutely “wrong”. If you were to compare your feed with that of a Trump for President support you would find the news they see, the articles they see, the videos they see, the posts they see, the groups they see, and the pages they see, are all driven, recommended, and control by a computer algorithm commonly referred to as “the algorithm”. Algorithms back every platform you use. It is the computer learning system that is trying to recommend content it believes you will like. If you search for it, related topics will be recommended. What you search for is tracked and recorded to benefit advertisers, but it is also used to help platforms keep you engaged there longer so they can serve you ads for longer periods of time which in return makes them more money. That is the business model of big tech, and why they can be the point to blame. Their algorithms allow people to be isolated in a world of only things they believe in. Canceling out anything that you do not literally “like” because it is not engaging content. The internet cannot be indistinguishable from reality, this is more than evident now more than ever.
Why should the President be removed ASAP:
As the serving Commander in Chief of the Armed forces, Donald Trump is a potential real, and credible threat to our democracy and the safety of the country. The 24 Amendment was included and later expanded because were formers of our Constitution because we understood at some point there would be a leader unfit to lead, but unwilling to leave his position. He poses a direct and immediate threat to our country. As mentioned before tech companies are partially to blame. Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, Twitter, Tiktok, and Twitch have all banned Trump. The United States needs to be next.
Almost every foreign nation, both allies, and enemies voiced their concern for the failure that is American democracy in 2021. Everyone has been waiting for the American experiment to fail, and now it appears it is on the brick on that such thing. We are no longer a pillar of light, a globally recognized diplomat, or in any position to police any other nation. Nations with smaller poverty rates, free healthcare, humanitarian prison systems, and legal recreational cannabis. How are we an example of society?
