Force-feeding democracy

I wish the US and EU countries would pay attention to the poll published in yesterday's Nation.

Eighty-eight per cent of the people are happier with the military in control.

Stop trying to force "democracy" down our throats. Shouldn't a governmental system be what the majority wants?

I do think democracy is the best system available, but it can only work when the majority of the people are educated enough to make an intelligent choice and they don't sell their votes, whether it be a direct cash sale or to a party who buys them off with populist policies.
