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.

No one ever said any government system yet devised ìs perfect!

Here's hoping you're wrong! I think you will, in the end, be proven wrong if for no other reason than that it hás worked here in the US. Our future may be troubled, but there will always be the historical fact that it did work, and people may be willing to try it all over again.

Totally false. Corrupt people come to power because we elect them to power. We elect them to power because we're lazy. Blame us, not the system.

Well, if he's a tyrant, I am truly thankful I didn't live, for example, under Stalin! Or any number of far worse world "leaders". Or do you mean tyrant in the Greek sense? That's patently untrue. 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!

Sound a lot like the US currently, in some ways...

It'd be nice to hear a little about how it works, before accepting such a judgement. Go on over to Conculture and tell us all about it! Padraic. ===== la cieurgeourea provoer mal trasfu ast meiyoer ke 'l andrext ben trasfu. -- Ill Bethisad -- <> Come visit The World! -- <> .
