All this talking about democracy brings to mind something I once pondered over. What is the alternative to democracy? But I think the real question should be: 'What is the next step in the evolution of forms of goverment after democracy has become old and obsolete?'
The concept of goverment works fine in an 'western' enviroment where you have what I would call 'civilization' and/or have an well established and functional society.
The democratic nations of the world today has been undergoing couple of 100 years of headstart to build up their functioning and well oiled societies that they are today.
If you try to squeeze a couple of 100 years of progress/evolution down a country's throat it might backfire and set an regression chain of events in motion where the people of the country revert to their 'older' and more 'safe' ideals. Along with the usual fight for the power struggle when a power vacuum emerges.
