Starting with Arab Spring 2011, all future Revolutions will produce democracies.


Anglo French  revolution produced democracies.
Then Russian revolution produced Stalin and his secret agents
...


Lest you forget, Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh was democratically elected in Iran,  but the CIA had him overthrown and installed the Shah of Iran in 1953.  Being democratically elected didn't ensure Uncle Sam's approval but  guaranteed violent removal unless the newly elected agreed to be subservient to the west. CIA coups were repeated in Central America and elsewhere to protect American interest.

If you think a democracy is the panacea for every country, you probably believe in the tooth fairy.
Greece, the world's first democracy, isn't faring very well, nor are the other European democracies.
Democratic India still has an untouchable class even though it's technically illegal. The discrimination they face should be championed by the human rights groups. .
In the USA, democracy is working fine for the top echelons who are getting enormous bonuses and salary increases while the middle class crumbles, and the unemployment rate grows. As the American poor are getting poorer and the rich get richer, the conditions for revolution isn't far off.

Why is Maoist China so cowardly in not "teaching Mr Cameron's England a lesson" as it did to the Vietnamese anno Domini 1979???

Fckfaced Party octopuses peessing in their pants?



It's no longer Maoist.  If Mao were alive today, he would decree another cultural revolution.

Wishful thinking!

Democracies are imploding. Look no farther than your native England!

We need a more sophisticated form of governance. Democracy is definitely OUT. Our Revolving Mouth ...



Its not wishful thinking, you can see it taking shape all over the middle-east not just Lybia.  Democracy isn't a panacea but its still the fairest system where every vote counts, there are different electoral systems like PR but that was firmly rejected here.  First-past-the-post elections are by far the most common throughout the world.

If we dont like the party in power we can boot them out at the next election.


YOUR homeland has done very well as a democracy, the problems in the UK are dissatisfaction with the government by an underclass of people but not many Countries in the world has a more generous benefits system than ours.

No other form of government could have done better, probably considerably worse.

Thats largely because they are in the Euro, Greeks were quite happy when the goverment overspent for their benefit but that couldn't last forever.

China, the last of the mohicans,
the man seio man seio man man seio culture.
the Queen Bee culture
a remnant from the ancient and medieval world.

Human evolution nowadays is about individuality, freedom, democracy
No more man seio man seio man man seio culture.

by 2020 China will really be the last of the mohicans.
