demokrati eller fred

Skriver Dr. Thomas Fleming:

What does George Bush mean by democracy? On the one hand, it is a victory for democracy when Palestinians vote for Hamas and want to develop a society very unlike our own. On the other hand, democracy means a list of rights only guaranteed in a few Western democracies. On the third hand (the hand that every politician has in our pockets) democracy means the conquest of a foreign country and the imposition of an unpopular alien regime. Democracy can have so many meanings because to the President’s low and dishonest speechwriters, words are only little gadgets with which they trick the voters into giving favorable answers in opinion polls.
