Does democracy the way it is defined really suit every nation and culture?
Please don't get me wrong, I'm not against democracy. I just see it not working in it's present form when introduced in several Nations. Perhaps, there is need to examine the fact that Nations have different cultures and ways of life which make it difficult for the kind of democracy many seek to practice to actually work.
I attended a conference recently and we struggled to find any Nation which has recently embraced democracy with positive impacts on the lives of the ordinary people.
My belief is that America and the west should stop rushing Nations into their own form of democracy, especially when the proper grounds have not been laid for such a form of government. Cultures differ, so do beliefs and practices.
Does democracy in it's present form as drummed into our brains really make life better for EVERY nation?
