If Democracy is used to subvert Democracy, to what level should Order be maintained at the expense of Law, should the state go into a decision free or should the state use it's might to bring the situation back to normal?
Facebook bans American President Donald Trump from it's platform followed by other tech companies. This raises the pertinent question. Who gave a private company rights to censor the Head of State of the country of their operation?
Ramateertham Temple desecration brings the question of secularism to the fore again. Should a King be a King in his own realm or should he be a servant in the Kingdom of God? And if the Law of the Kingdom clashes with the Law of the Kingdom of God, what takes a precedence?
