Any administration that seeks to denigrate and silence opposition using the power of the government tramples freedom.
Freedom, for the supporters of the government agenda only, for the members of a said party regardless of how many have no freedom at all. Without general elections, freedom of the press, assembly, and speech in all public institutions. The bureaucracy remains the only active element. The result is a dictatorship. Perhaps the question to be asked is that what the present administration seeks?
