The illusion that we the people have any kind of choice when we vote or participate in (s)electing our masters is ridiculous, but Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky is showing the world the depths of tyranny we all are living in. He’s using martial law to prevent an election.
On Wednesday, Zelensky proposed to extend the state of emergency, thereby effectively canceling parliamentary elections scheduled for October. Never forget that voting is immoral, but the illusion of choice is quickly eroding for the ruling classes.
According to a report by RT, Zelensky declared martial law on February 24, 2022, and has been extending it ever since. The most recent 90-day extension was announced on May 20th and is due to expire on August 18th. If the Verkhovna Rada approves Zelensky’s latest request, this will see the emergency extended through November 15th, ensuring (s)elections won’t happen.
Ukrainian manmade law calls for parliamentary elections no later than October 29th, with a 60-day campaign season starting on August 28th. However, it also forbids campaigning and voting during martial law. Another extension would cut into the campaign season for the presidential elections, currently scheduled for March 2024.
“If we have martial law, we cannot have elections. The constitution prohibits any elections during martial law,” Zelensky announced in May. The following month, he told the BBC that “elections need to happen in a time of peace when there is no fighting.”
Zelensky, like all politicians and members of the ruling class want one thing: more power, and more control over those they see as their slaves. So much for “all men are created equal.” Some must just be more equal than others. Zelensky is no different.
Earlier this month, the Federal Intelligence Service of Switzerland accused Zelensky of attempting to “politically eliminate” Kiev mayor Vitaly Klitschko ahead of next year’s presidential election. The FIS cited “credible intelligence” to say that Zelensky was “showing authoritarian traits” which may lead to Western pressure, according to a classified report leaked to the outlet NZZ.
It’s past time to start realizing what government is: slavery. We need to stop promoting, supporting, and enforcing the rulers’ commands. We can ignore them out of business, but until those who voluntarily “serve” the ruling class stop being immoral in exchange for a paycheck, we will be enslaved to people who only care about how much compliance they can get out of others.
