Your assessment of the situation is accurate! The lone exception being your assessment of Trump. Sadly, at this point, I am not sure saner heads will or can prevail. All governments have for decades been censoring the materials you have been able to access and what is published by the news media. True journalism died 30 years ago, now the morons in the media willfully do the bidding of governments printing government propaganda. Here in the US the federal government has ignored the wishes, and betterment of its citizens for at least 30 years. I fear the time for citizens of any country to speak up passed long ago. So I am curious as to why you believe speaking out now will actually change anything that is happening?
