Democracy or reform……you can’t have both?

January 13, 2011

Here, dear readers, is a very well written blog post that accurately paints a picture of this region in general terms.

I agree with the content in the link to the extent I won’t bother to split a few hairs which would take away the impact of the piece.

All I will say, is that during the holiday season and the associated socialising that occurred on a very large scale, I was left with th impression from the majority of those I spoke with that right now reform and not democratic stalemate  is most wanted by the public at large.

This is probably not surprising after a democratic situation that enabled no reform over the recent years.

The hope is, no doubt the pendulum will swing back towards democracy again after the needed reforms have been implemented………life is not without its risks.
