Agreement For Democracy

Despite the presence of many talented and informed television news journalists, the media itself, which puts the image on substance and the rapid sound bite on the laborious development of complex arguments, is simply not appropriate to explain what is happening in the house. But something fundamental had changed in those years, something that changed the provisions of the democratic treaty. Increasingly, bills have been put to a vote under a “closed rule” on the floor of the Assembly, so there is no chance of changing them. Instead of participants in the legislative process creatively changing bills by changing them, we were asked to be automatons with stamps that say “yes” or “no.” The old treaty of democracy has been violated – and it has remained in rupture. We can formulate a number of hypotheses to explain this result.
