I live in
The constitution about to be adopted stipulates that once adopted, it can only be undone if two successive terms of Parliament wish to undo it with a two thirds majority. The current revisions, however, only have to be adopted ONCE. The preamble of the new constitution makes it clear that it is intended to cement the rule of a Christian majority, not to protect the freedoms of individuals, and definitely not to protect the rights of any minority. The clause about separation of church and state has been eliminated. Marriage has been defined in the preamble as the union of man and woman. 'Christian values' are emphasized.
The Office of the State Prosecutor is being used to harass people considered opponents of the regime. Former officials (often with justification, but also often without) are investigated and tried for corruption. A steady air of intimidation is settling over the country.
My concern is that once this regime fails – and fail it will, shall, inevitably, as its economic policies will cause mass dissatisfaction and a bloody revolution – the populace will not turn to the discredited liberals for succor. They will turn to the only political force which has not yet taken the reins of power in
