Robert Wilensky. “We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.” [Quotes of the Day]
“I don't want to wait to find a smoking gun; that means the guy has already shot me.” John Hulsman, senior policy analyst at Heritage Foundation.
IMHO a democracy is a protestant viewpoint of an appropiate relationship between Church and state. It has been a very effective form of government for the United States and has been effective in promoting religious tolerance because it reflects the beliefs of the people. If a country is looking to change to a democratic form of government, I doubt they will be effective unless they share this cornerstone.
