You really have not got a clue have you?
These protestors are not protesting against democracy in the least. They are protesting against actions, effects, and results of the behaviour of
governments and corporations which, by colluding together, have enslaved people all over the world, locked them into situations from which they cannot
escape, done things in the name of their people which those people would look poorly upon for good reason, and have never been held accountable for
They are protesting because democracy has been hijacked out from under the governed, to the point where it is literally impossible for the population
of a nation to elect representatives who actually represent them, rather than the minority of wealth holders and corporate interests in their nations,
and they are protesting a huge number of other injustices globally, ones which we all agree are terrible in their aspect, and could, SHOULD be solved
as a matter of urgency.
You may not like their methods, you may not like their masks, but to suggest that they are protesting because they do not believe in democracy is a
huge error. They are protesting about the issues that matter to all of us, everyone. They are protesting against government spying, which any liberty
loving individual should get behind. They are protesting against corruption, which steals money from the pockets of the taxpayer, and places it in the
hands of private interests. They are protesting about war crimes, which any population anywhere should get behind, because without accountability,
their is no justice, and without justice, there is no society, just tyranny. They are trying to protect what remains of democracy, not destroy it,
clean it up, not cover it in dirt and put a gravestone beside it.
Your understanding of their aims is not just flawed. It is non existent.
