    You wouldn't want to live under a pure democracy would you? That could be a pretty bad thing.

    No. You can have a election w/o democracy. People have to participate, even the minorities. Peoples rights have to be documented and followed. That requires a culture that supports minority rights.

    Sometimes there isn't a way. Religious beliefs can get in the way to the point that even their religion has to change.

    I think your inner dialogue is something like the Diane Rehm's show on NPR.
    I can't even imagine what you might mean by that. In any case, if you're going to play the "wounded innocent," at least do it in an instance where it wasn't you who did what you self-describe as "trolling," n'est-ce pas?

    In many cases yes. What this comes down to is essentially Nation Building. It costs too much in many cases and takes more than a decade and can't be done in the current situation in Syria. Note that my position is that even if there is a successful revolution in Syria, the new leadership will soon function as a dictatorship with a subculture bias.

    Wait... I guess that means you got trolled.
    With no intentions on my part.
    I actually state that I did no trolling.
    Yet you were trolled by a non trolling statement.
    Thus you were trolled by no intention of my own.

    I don't understand by what psychosomatic lapse you came to believe I am playing 'wounded' by any means.

    By my post I imply that you 'fell on your own sword' loosely, as it were.

    Religious beliefs can get in the way to the point that even their religion has to change.
    How do you suppose we change.. say... evangelical americans?

    Awww. Am I not validating you enough? "Young people," indeed.
