: So you tell me NJ, are we doing democracy?
That was a very interesting post, thanks. But I really don't want to get into deciding for other countries whether they are or are not a democracy. That's your decision to make, not mine. I fidn it quite arrogant and annoying when Bill Clinton and the American establishment start classifying other countries as to how free or democratic they are. These guys wouldn't know what democracy was if it bit them in the ass. as long as American elections are a money-controlled farce involving two parties (sometimes only one) in which most peopel don't veen bother to vote, it's an open question whether WE are a democracy, let alone South Korea.
