Democracies all around the world are failing. As Governments scramble to deal with soaring deficits, pending inflation, and financial sector collapse, democracies descend into a whirlwind of bi/tri-partisan rhetoric, while legislation comes to a standstill. Societies begin to divide between prominent ideologies of liberalism and conservatism.
You hear alot of people proposing "capitalism" and "socialism" as alternatives, but is it the over-arching system of Democracy that is failing us? Are the current global problems a herald of the capitalist/democracy experiment failing in its infancy? Any thoughts?
