Is Democracy Under Threat?

To much of the world surprise, multiple bomb devices were sent to the addresses of high level politicians, businessmen and celebrities. From former Presidents Barrack Obama, The Clintons, George Soros, John Brennan, Robert De Niro and the list goes on. For the first time ever, in the world not just a first world country and leader in democracy, such an act has been carried out. It begs the question is democracy under threat?

Several suspicious packages have been sent to individuals or companies that appear to speak towards tolerance and understanding. While the people who were sent such package were from various professions, from business to politics and media, one things they all seem to share is their political view. They all tend to challenge the extremist and far right views and believe society as a whole should more tolerant. As the FBI and CIA continue investigating, it is still unknown why exactly those package were sent or how they were sent, we can only point out the pattern of those who received such packages.

As we wait to find out what the intelligence agency and other make of the such act, certain questions begin to arise about what the intention of such packages. Is this political or a form of intimidation, or is it a whole another level of terrorism or worst yet is this an attack on democracy itself?
