To Wedhim: Liberal democracy, if it does not teaches that one day you will die then it is false in its very essence

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?
in response to reader comment: Liberal democracy is not a religion, neither is "real" Islam: both are political philosophies

I doubt your dream could ever become a reality that "the elections should be free and fair". Only a few countries could "afford" the experimentation of free and fair Elections.

What you call semi-slavery is better as compared to full-slavery of humans through banks, greedy venture capitalists and deceptive politicians that run election campaings.

Liberal democracy may it be a religion or political philosophies, if it does not teaches that one day you will die then it is false in its very essence.
