Suu Kyi has been fighting for democracy in Myanmar her whole life. In a fair election in 1990, her party won 81% of the votes, and yet she was not allowed to serve and was instead put under house arrest by the oligarchy controlled military who claimed she "stole the election." Yes, the same thing Trump tried to pull in the USA 2020 election where he lost, and then tried to get a coup of Right Wing Americans to takeover the capital and create a shit storm of chaos so ugly that he could declare Marshall Law and keep his power forever, as his comrade in Russia has done.
Yes, the 1% of the 1%'ers, the Oligarchs of the world are winning. They do it by getting control of a country's conservatives, and/or military leaders and killing off the moderates and free thinkers. In France, they almost achieved the crème de la crème last week in a close election where the moderate leader barely defeated the conservative Putin implant who wanted to build a wall around France from the rest of Europe -- sound familiar? It should, for it was the same thing that happened in the USA with Donald Trump and his love affair for Russia. Fortunately for the US, however, our military is run by a mixture of people that includes People of Color and varying religious backgrounds, and so, Trump couldn't get control over the military that he needed to pull off his Vladimir Putin coup.
