Opinion | Is Democracy a Figment of Our Imagination?

“Look, for example, at what is happening to the First Amendment today. Is there free speech in America? Is everyone encouraged, or even permitted to express what they really think?

And when you have no freedom of speech, you also have no equality, and therefore no democracy,” Michael Laitman writes.
