Mass migration into urban areas has polarized societies around the world, as urban priorities clash with rural priorities. This fact alone, quite apart from other trends, has split countries which once had a degree of harmony and an overriding sense of nation. Add to this the significant impetus given to the destabilization of newly-democratic societies by discreet funding injected by such financiers as George Soros to create “color revolutions”: the means by which the popular vote can be overturned by street protest and media manipulation.
The rule is now clear, from the US to the Ukraine, and from Thailand to Egypt: If you don‟t like the results, you can overturn them. And if the majority vote isn‟t the one desired by key foreign states, then they, too, will assist in helping the losing side in a democratic election “take it to the street” in a now formulaic approach to overturning the popular vote.
Escalating street violence in Kiev to topple the Government of Ukraine reflects the reality that Western Ukraine, which has a Western-oriented history and a dominance by Uniate Catholicism, has differing priorities to Eastern Ukraine, which is heavily oriented toward Russia and is dominated by Orthodox Christianity. But the Western Ukraine lacks the population to outvote Eastern Ukraine, so “democratic elections” cannot deliver what they want.
Similarly, the urban population of Bangkok and other Thai cities cannot match the voting power of the rural areas, so “democratic elections” cannot give the urban élites what they seek.
