Not on a large scale and not in anything less
than a highly educated and fanatic population.
The former is required if citizens are to offer
an informed vote (voice in government); the
latter is a vital requirement in order to weed
out government officials who are anything less
than committed to Democratic ideals and the
proper good of the nation.

Well, if he's a tyrant, I am truly thankful I
didn't live, for example, under Stalin! Or any

mean tyrant in the Greek sense? That's patently
And curious that in one breath you say that
Democracy can't work, yet one of the places you
list where it does work has no long standing
tradition of democracy (Japan). Go figure!
