Ptolomeu and Egyptians

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

Submitted by Breno Lima (Brazil), Feb 6, 2011 at 14:13

Would Ptolomeu agree with the direction Egypt politics is taken? I believe the Greeks on the other side of the Mediterraneo Sea never wrote a receeipe for Democracy. Ocidental thinkers believe vote, existence of Executive, Legislative and Judicial Powers, in some way are sinonimous of Democracy, and it is not. But of course the non existence of this systems caracteristics it is not. For sure Democracy nowadays it is best way to conciliate a vast numbers of opinious and diferences.
