Democracy starts in the womb.

Reader comment on item: Why Egypt Will Not Soon Become Democratic

Submitted by batya dagan (United States), Feb 4, 2011 at 17:54

Denmocracy does not fall from the sky one bright day.It is a prtocess that one finds himself in from birth.It is all about education where children learn to respect evryone's need and to listen to the advice they get fropm their teachers.

When religion comes into the game it is the end of democracy.Theocracy is the end of all other freedoms.

Dictatorship is the same .Egypt had a light dictatorship that actually sort of fit its needs and kept it from unneeded wars with Israel.

Too bad that the Egyptians did not watch the Israeli democracy and learned how this complex thing works. My guess is that they don't really know what democracy is and are not willing to put in the work it takes to learn it and to understand that democracy does not grow jobs on trees.

Someone needs to tell them that they can start by being fair to women not to mention to one another .A lot of work can be done and should be done before democracy would want to live amongv them.
