When Democracy Kills: What’s So Good About The Vote came out in 2009, I lost two long-time friends who hinged their view on 9/11 and refused the debate. It was difficult topic to discuss anywhere in the West. Now, with the latest militia killings in Libya and Egypt’s military reversing electoral choice, people can’t get enough of of it. It is dangerously naive to strip away dictatorship and expect peace. Democracy represents hope and fairness. It is not a system of government.
