    … I have chills…🤔…you’re absolutely correct…

  2. Fragile times in the history of Democracy.
    I’m still in disbelief that US democracy could be under such severe attack from the inside.

  3. Love these Fareed Takes. This guy reminds me of the intelligence & sophistication I expect to see from people when addressing these topics. Very mindful, wise insight, thorough research, I can go on and on. The globe is in a serious crisis & it truly pains me to see the attack come from our own people at every single turn.

      If you think Fareed Zakaria follows a script, you are clueless. He is widely known for NOT following any conventional world views and being difficult to place on the political spectrum. Liberals and conservative both respect him. Just because he criticized your god Trump makes you want to hate him and place him in a stereotypical position, but reality he is just smarter than you.

      @Jock Young You’d have to be a total moron to respect Fareed.

    • @William H Music 2020 You must be what to believe to someone who has officially lied 14 000 within 3 years …

      @Jock Young I didn’t vote for “trump” and CNN is still full of divisive and race baiting hacks propagating lies.

      The stooge in this video is no exception.

      @Heather11268 do you think typing in all caps makes people want to read what you write? It actually does the opposite.

    • @Nightmare Core Well maybe you should change your profile name it’s a little gay don’t you think !

    • @Bubbles did you just assume my gender, cnn should report on this.

    • So who of you TDS lemmings have any proof that Trump violates the constitution?

    • @Bubbles you know that you are a whole coward. You racist white people keep using Trump as a minister of racism. That’s not going to work. You punks have been losing sight of your racist behavior for a long time. It’s time to give that bull butter up and accept that you ain’t worth wet tissue.

    Your about a year behind… much like the bullet from a gun by the time you hear the gunshot you’re already dead… and by the time the American people figure out that there is no more democracy it’s too late. The time to revolt is now. The American people need to be storming Congress right now otherwise in 2020 you will see all civil liberties completely eviscerated… it started with things like the Consumer Protection Agency and education…and will end with god only knows

    It’s been clear for decades with the unrelenting attack on the middle and lower class societies in multiple channels such as work and prosperity opportunity coupled with legislated compounding increases to the cost of living; popularizing humankinds more basal instincts above civility and intellect; fostering ever increasing disrespect for all forms of authority from family and community up through to political whilst at the same time crippling these institutions from every angle; bastardising the specific and clear meanings within every language to a point where it’s diminished to wishy washy garbled nonsense.
    When viewed on a global scale where you can see this occuring unilaterally there can be no doubt that this is a deliberate core objective to subjugate the global populace ahead of an event of truly historic proportions where militaristic dictatorial rule will be enshrined.
    Dark clouds ahead in the coming decades and more.

      I couldn’t have said it better. The dumbing down of Americans and the ever increasing materialism , has made many people clueless or just don’t care about what is really going on in our gov’t. !

    We are becoming a lawless country!

    • @Noneshere you are not happy with Americans go some where els

    • Amazing how people have said nothing for years other than those that don’t live here are now saying it every day. Either you are young, or buried your head in the sand for countless presidencies for decades. I was a Democrat, but now I am progressive. When I saw the Democrats becoming republicans and both parties enslaving supporters in echo chamber’s, I quit. If you are not consistent in your discontent, you are irrelevant now.

    • USA has become a 3rd world banana republic.
      USA’s democracy has failed completely and totally.
      USA can hardly claim to be a democracy because in a democracy, nobody….absolutely nobody is above the law. However, in USA today a republican president can commit crimes against the very constitution and republican lawmakers think that is just fine. The failure of the American justice system to punish a criminal president and just as criminal lawmakers is why USA today can be considered to be a 3rd world banana republic.
      USA cannot preach moral to anyone in the world today since USA (the president and republicans in general) has chosen to take the path of a 3rd world, corrupt banana republic.
      The entire world is laughing of USA today. USA’s own allies laugh of USA. Nobody, absolutely nobody trust USA today.
      USA was once the beacon of democracy. Today, USA is merely the laughing stock of the world, like a punchline in a bad joke.

    • TheChiefEng I’ve been around the world for years, decades. This isn’t new. Politicians have been dishonest and criminal for years. I can name something from any regime or president. I hate Trump, but I hate peoples that are just now waking up. If you had no problem with it before, you have no right to speak now. If you’re not consistent, you’re irrelevant.

    • We have President Trump And he is all about law and order. So sit back and enjoy the trump 2020 Landslide Victory

  10. And yet we all seem more concerned about what trinket we will buy next.

  11. The 😈 is busy he is Attacking our very souls we as a god fereing Nation need to fight back by praying to God That he rid us of this evil!

    • Brainwashed Libtard! You invoke God standing on the side of Infanticide. Shame on you!
      President Trump = Prosperity! Promiseskept.com
      If you think you’re not brainwashed, try to prove your beliefs wrong. Watch Conservative News and see if you’re right or wrong. You’ll be surprised.
      Go Trump, The Chosen One! 2020 Landsl….AVALAAAAAANCHE!

  12. The world is on fire.

    I’m surprised that Fareed did not talk about Poland. We’ve got some violations going on too, and we were the beacon for democracy movements in the 80s

  15. It’s hard to realize your on a sinking ship for some folks until the water is over their head.

  16. Oh, so some people _do_ notice. I wondered if I was the only one, since every news piece only seems to focus on a single incident.
    Democracy itself is at peril. Not in the US, not in India but around the world.
