Do you think Democracy can work in every Nation?
The events in Africa and the Middle East seem to show the contrary.
In Africa,the rise of Multi-Party Democracy has seen the rise of Tribalism and nations being divided over tribal lines often leading to violence
In the Middle East,The trend has been that virtually every nation that has overthrown their dictators has voted in a Government that is hostile to Western civilization. Starting with Hamas in 2006. I am starting to question the validity of Democracy in developing nations!.
Short answer: No. And I don't think it has anything to do with whether a nation is developing or undeveloped. There is no perfect government and no perfect recipe for nations to follow.
No, we need a republic, not a democracy.
In a democracy the people get what they want regardless of if it's right or wrong. It's like me, my two brothers, and my sister deciding what movie to watch. My brothers and I usually want action movies with violence and scary stuff, which my sister hates. Since there are 3 brothers and 1 sister, our sister never gets to choose the movie. That's when our parents come in and say our sister gets to choose the movie sometimes.
Politicians should be elected by the people, be governed by a written constitution, and enforce the law based on what is morally right, not based on what the people want.

Anarchy, they say, is the best form of government. As it is possible only in Utopia, can't we try for a single universal nation with a single government (the second best) instead of the separate nations we are now. That can at least sort some of the problems world is facing now. America's...

What is your opinion of "The Iran Deal"?To my view "The Iran Deal" is nothing short of "Kicking the can down the road, with an uphill road facing Israel and the USA" when the "deal" expires. Meantime, Iran builds the military technology and armaments,...

I am utterly convinced that we shall never again see a truly limited government. As power corrupts so does absolute power corrupt absolutely. Our Presidents demand more power. Our Congress legislates new power ignoring the will of the people. Our courts interpret new powers. Sooner or later a...
