Democracy – 9

In nations which have no history of democracy, the likelihood of its survival is highly unlikely.

Many nations achieve independence and in joy and excitement, hold an election.  The person elected may enter as the great liberator, or the people’s hero, but in a short time begins to believe he is to hold that post for life.

He sees all challengers as enemies and becomes ruthless in his need to hold power.

As there is no history of checks and balances and the leader refuses to listen to different opinions, corruption rules.

Nations which might have begun with  hope and a sense of justice become  failed states within twenty years.

This is because Democracy is an acquired taste.
