The mentality that a governmental revision of democratic processes in a failed non-democratic government through Neo-Colonialism brings with it much of the same issues of changing from one world view to another in a societal setting that has complicated issues of preconditioning towards what is going to protect the citizen from competing and conflicting ideologies that are inherent in today's societies. A taste of all the world's attempts to govern in all the different forms of governance has been experienced and none are cosidered totally acceptable; not even in the United States. Neo-Colonialism will promote again the import-export of ideologically foreign concepts of governance and traditionally this does not end well. The American Constitutional model worked for America only marginally so for the cause that law and order from observing Judeo-Christian values was the basis: but not all were convinced of such as evidenced in the rebellion of the war between the States and its century-plus-old continuation of fightng old social issues at task today.
The United States was started from a colonial beginning; and though its founding basis is being challenged today with secularistic socialistic tendencies of a generation that is spoiled with Neo-Marxist ideologies that have no basis in the rule of law, an entire society is finding out that such a model is not necessarily going to solve an even more complicated governmental failure in which allegiance to a religious set of rules is unenforceable across the board and freedom of thought cannot be so protected. It is human nature.
This is where equity and equality are examined and found unenforceable, even in a democratically formed republic such as the United States - not everone agrees to the principles - period.
There is always rebellion in the heart and how does one conquer that? It requires submission beyond that of human nature. Christianesque and Muslim sensibilites, going long beyond any other philosophical or theosophical examination of the human condition, appear in and of themselves, unable to conquer that human condition of the rebellion of the heart. That is what is happening in the former regime in old Persia-Iran. Remember who Mordechai served and realize this is exactly what is at stake; neocolonialism notwithstanding.
