US elections 2020

16 January 2021

This is normal after riots. Left intellectuals will blame right radicals, and political supporters of right extremists will blame Maoists. But one point is obvious that it is politically motivated. As a political scientist and jurist, one should correlate the past events and political announcements and then conclude accountability. Every action is fair in love and war, and war, direct or indirect, is the politics by other means. So Horowitz explained after studying many riots in India and other developing countries practicing democracy.
Riots in the United States confirm that corruption and riots can be minimized but cannot be eliminated in democracy. Politically motivated good governance is the only solution. Leaders represent people's ambition and culture of that time.

"The US House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump on one article of impeachment on Wednesday, charging the outgoing president with inciting the January 6 attack on the US Capitol building. The House vote makes Trump the first president in US history to be impeached twice. Trump released a statement following the historic vote but did not mention impeachment".

Suhas Palshikar writes in Indian Express on January 12, 2021.

"Why siege of Capitol in Washington DC resonates closer home, carries lessons for us all.

The US experience indicates that democracy requires continuous caution. But perhaps the least learned lesson at home in India is about the comparative pathology of such autarchy lurking in our midst".

"Trump relied on megalomania; Indira Gandhi, too, was carried away by her own image. But in the present moment, we have a combination of megalomania with systemic ingredients ensuring that democracy will not be defined by what ought to be in an Orwellian fashion but based on what is claimed as democracy. His vote share notwithstanding, Trump could muster only a handful and only for a few hours to claim that they constitute the people of the US. In India’s case, with much less vote share, a large section is willing to keep their faith in the new idea of democracy constituted by victimhood and dominance as entitlements of majority."

"It Happened in America. Democratic Backsliding Should not have Come as a Surprise," Pippa Norris writes.
"Elections are the heart of liberal democracy. Losers voluntarily leave office. Winners assume rightful power. Yet the world just witnessed the stunning sight of a mob storming the U.S. Capitol to reject the legitimacy of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, driven by President Donald Trump’s delusional lies about a stolen contest. Rioters scaled scaffolding, broke through windows, and stormed the halls of Congress. They strolled through the Hall of Statues with a Confederate flag fluttering over their shoulders, brandished weapons on the floor of the Senate, and propped their feet up on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s desk. One woman was shot and killed. Members of Congress retreated into lockdown, gas masks in hand. They were forced to suspend the constitutionally required business of formally confirming the victory of the incoming president because of the incitement triggered by the incumbent president. This was an insurrection."

The Capitol Siege Is the Wake-up Call America Shouldn’t Have Needed

Elite Enabling of Populist Tyranny Can Doom Democracy

"China’s Communist Youth League, echoing U.S. reactions to the 2019 pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, called the storming of the Capitol a “beautiful sight.”

"The first imperative of any democracy is to physically secure and protect itself—its people, its public officials, and its institutions." 

"For the last four years, Trump has been the arsonist in chief, lighting the populist flames of rumor and outrage. After a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in 2017, he insisted that “wonderful people” were on both sides of the conflict. Later, he retweeted a threat of civil war if he were to be impeached".

"Democracies of the world are in trouble. Mobs want to disrupt law and order. Internet and social media are changing the world dramatically. Corruption in all societies affects the social system. Force of law is required to curtail the violence of lawbreakers around the world. The world should take a new shape. China, Russia, United States, G5, G7, G10, or G20 should call a meeting of the United Nations at the earliest. Elites around the world are instigating people of the opposition countries". Jaipal
