In keeping with powerful leaders who prefer one-party rule, the opposition is smeared and silenced in media as extremists, followers arrested for protests, their speech is banned for spreading lies and false narratives, and its populist leader is criminalized despite millions of followers.
Meanwhile in Russia, Vladimir Putin did much same thing today in reaction to Alexei Navalny and his followers. Evidently, it beats the heck out of more democratic alternatives. 😎
