The west is adamant that the east should have Democracy. Sure! I say, its a good ideology. Starts with "by the People, for the People... " and other goodness. However, what we get here instead, is worse than what the west ended up when theirs mixed with capitalism and corporate interests.

Since we failed to have education that leads to a moral society, rule of law, and a justice system, we ended up with "By the politician (and their friends), for the politicians (and their friends), ..." and so on. This latter phrasing of what is usually toted as the principle of democracy was however nicked from an editorial piece by Abul Moksud. You may (and should) read it here.

The watchdogs from the international arenas have problems with many things we do, except this new found implementation of Democracy.

No Faith in Democracy
