The people of Bhutan didn't even want to have a democratic government. They were happy with their king! The king ordered his people to be democratic. Yet, a culture of monks have created one of the happiest and probably social furthest advanced nation of the world. Their co2-emission is negative and they export green energy! All that within years without losses on any other side! I think the western world is dominated by money too heavily. True words can't be spoken and turned to actions, if money reigns.
@Penguin Any political or economic system can work if it weren't for a few greedy bastards. If the person at the top is a decent person, they can suppress the greedy. As long as greed rules a country (all capitalism lends itself to greed) the country can never be stable or accomplish great things.
