People Mere Spectators in Drama Surrounding Presidential Election

The presidential election is like a drama with many fights and making hugs. However, in this drama, the public are mere spectators who will be included when the curtain closes.

In fact, democracy is not a theatrical show. Democracy is the concrete action of the people in determining, organizing, and evaluating how the country is run. The tools used are not theatrical scenarios, but the general elections and public participation in government, including criticizing mistakes.
