Michelle Obama and Prince Harry are two of my favorite people: both champions of actual democracy, multi-culturalism, and disability rights. We youth who've taken education and are actively involved in creating change(and 'perfecting' America's democratic 'union...') are both inspired and stymied. We are perpetually attacked by forces of corruption and reaction, and need both encouragement and practical aid from figures like the Obamas and Prince Harry.
The combination of the internet with our nation's success and affluence unleashed a renaissance of democracy upon a faded Republic who, accustomed to the plutocracy and autocratic strictures enshrined during the Cold War... had to some degree forgotten the true validity and significance of constitutional principles like freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly.
Freedom of citizen expression had been replaced by a highly organized and controlled press elite... and voices outside it, from R.F.K. to M.L.K., were stalked by police organizations and usually assassinated.
Police had come to beat and murder those who stood up against the established order until the combination of internet video and American affluence caused the people en masse, and people of influence, to take a new look at such subjects.
President Obama, and Michelle, were key allies in this. Reforms were enacted. But, as in all cases of rapid progress, there was a reaction... a push to restore autocracy, a highly controlled press, and a police state controlled by armed forces enforcing not the law(too many officers know nothing of Supreme Court rulings nor the law of the land) but simply of the barbarous prejudices of man, the whims of the elders, and the undeserved wealth of those who'd come to enjoy the benefits of their monopolies and rackets(our markets are far from free.)
The struggle for democracy, for free speech, for free markets etc. is on. Social media is the press of those who advocate for such values... and social media is under heavy attack by those who in their hearts love neither truth, nor democracy, nor the voice of the people... but rather the control and wealth they'd come to enjoy during past decades when our constitutional principles of democracy were descending into authoritarianism guarded by xenophobia and propaganda.
