The Global Democracy Index, designed to showcase at a glance how nations fare in maintaining a free society, has recently scored the world for 2021 and the tally isn’t pretty.
The planet hit a new low, scoring even lower than it did in 2020.
The Index, which looks at each nation’s electoral process and pluralism, functioning of government, political participation, political culture, and civil liberties, makes it clear that the world is heading on a downward spiral, even as many countries have ditched the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus lockdowns and other Draconian measures put in place to “prevent the spread” of the CCP Virus.
Over 70% of all countries either performed no better than they did in 2020 or actually received a worse score than they did a year ago, making it clear that democracy isn’t just declining in a few select locations, but rather the world all over.
One would think the United States would have ranked higher than it did a year ago; after all, “President” Joe Biden announced at his inauguration in early 2021 that “democracy has prevailed” and he has recently pledged to spend over $400 million in taxpayer money on “democratic renewal initiatives.”
Even so, America’s score went from 7.92 to 7.85.
The nation is now ranked as a “flawed democracy.”
Canada also took a tumble due to the backlash against the government’s Draconian COVID-19-related restrictions.
The current protests have cost the nation its spot in the top ten world democracies, and it now stands in twelfth place.
At the same time, the report had some misinformation that’s hard to miss.
New Zealand is somehow the second-most Democratic nation on earth in spite of the fact that Kiwis aren’t allowed to enter their own nation, this as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern maintains her iron grip on society by insisting on nation-wide lockdowns every single time a person tests positive for COVID-1984.
Australia, which has CCP Virus concentration camps for people who test positive for COVID, and has likewise imposed Draconian restrictions on the local population in the name of “preventing the spread of COVID-19,” has somehow come in ninth place.
China is somehow ranked as “freer” than Venezuela.
Both nations are undoubtedly controlled by megalomaniac tyrants, but at least Venezuela doesn’t have an organized campaign designed to torture, intimidate and eliminate an entire ethnic minority; nor is it trying to exterminate freedom of religion and stamp out belief in God.
In spite of its inaccuracies, the Global Democracy Index is right to note that freedom is declining worldwide as many nations use the CCP Virus plandemic as a pretext to take away their citizens’ basic rights.
However, those who are concerned about personal freedom of choice will be encouraged to know people all over the world are banding together to stand up to tyranny.
The trucker protest in Canada is going strong, and it has inspired others to follow in its footsteps.
In New Zealand, hundreds of protests are currently occupying Parliament’s lawns to demand the end of restrictions, while expatriate New Zealanders sue their country in order to regain their right to re-entry.
Australia’s “Convoy to Canberra” protests are gaining steam and a sitting member of the nation’s parliament has even joined in to demand the end of COVID-19 restrictions and “vaccine” mandates.
It remains to be seen how these actions will affect next year’s Global Democracy Index, but there is hope that the mandates will eventually be rescinded and people will regain the right to travel at will, make their own medical decisions, and choose a career without fear of losing it due to a lockdown or mandatory jab.
