LeeAnn DeReus maybe the problem with genocide is democracy and monarchy.
Civilocity is a form of government where the people watch the ruler entirely amongst their reign. Democracy is a form of government where the people pick by majority who their leader is. Which form of government do you think is better?
Civilocity makes sure the leader of a country like Sudan never again has the ability to cover up genocide. Do you want the leader of Sudan to cover up genocide tomorrow?
It is a choice if people want democracy so the leader of Sudan can cover up genocide tomorrow or if people want civilocity so the leader of Sudan can’t cover up genocide tomorrow? It is a true battle between civilocity and democracy yet knowing if there is law is more important then picking someone who say’s there is law? Do I spend a life fighting democracy in a democratic country? For the last four years, after writing civilocity at age 22, I have only begun to see the obstacles I will face challenging democracy and can only imagine the obstacles to come.
