Save Romania!

Popular Sovereignty is defined as “a doctrine in political theory that government is created by and subject to the will of the people”. This simply means that the citizens of the country are in charge of the government and how it is run. People are allowed to vote on who represents them in a government position. Then the person who was elected represents the people of their area and their opinions. SAVE ROMANIA!

I cannot believe that it is 21st century and we still have the same problem with the people who are in charge of our countries. Carmen Dumitrescu – the Romanian journalist says in the interview with Deutche Welle that durning her investigation about the corruption in the government she was watched by the people from the company connected with the prime minister of Romania – Liviu Dragnei. That’s a huge risk for the freedom of the speech and press in this region. The EU should make a major moves to stop politicians from countries of Central Europe like: Poland, Hungary and Romania and prevent them from any further damage of our fundamental values. Personally I will never understand it. Why the politicians in our countries cannot just do what they’re supposed to do – improve our lives, the lives of the citizens, people, their sovereign?

I would even say – save the Romania, save your people, save the future of EU.

When I had to write the other day some words on democracy on a whiteboard at an exhibition. We learned in school many times that the word democracy came from the Greek and literally translates to that the power belongs to the people. But what is the problem that we simply can’t understand the importance of it when we look around? We see people not being able or hindered to vote in other countries and we feel bad because they have to live with leaders, that were not the choice by the majority but on our skin we, my generation in Austria, has never experienced it. We were encouraged to go to vote as soon as we can from different institutions since we can remember but only in recent years the awareness about how important it really is showed in numbers when we had to face the chance of having Norbert Hofer as our president. The increased number of voters didn’t happen because we were just acting by what we have been told, it was because people didn’t want to live with a right wing president or earlier at the municipal election with a major called HC Strache. Also now, in the recent election 2017, more and more younger people went to vote and we had 80 percent turnout of voters. So that’s the thing with democracy and maybe thats the best thing: in good times we can’t even imagine what it would be without it! Democracy is something that makes us believe that we are so far away from all the absolutistic tyrants and atrocities that we can actually forget about it in our life of wealth and chances. But as mentioned, slowely the number of people who are getting to the polls in times of chance will be raising again because I believe, my generation will not accept any more inequality that the recent government is spreading into peoples mind and we will feel importance of democracy on our skin again until a future generation has to think back to the Greek when they will be asked to write the meaning of it on a whiteboard.
