Comments on: Seeking ‘good-enough-governance’ — not democracy http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/09/22/seeking-good-enough-governance-not-democracy/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Hawkish7 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/09/22/seeking-good-enough-governance-not-democracy/#comment-76362 Tue, 24 Sep 2013 06:00:12 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=24305#comment-76362 I fully agree. One only needs to live in a country like my own Kenya,to take this advise seriously. Whether in Kenya, Egypt, Zimbabwe, Nigeria or Mali democracy as epitomised in periodical elections, security, property rights and individual freedoms is a big scam and a sham that often involves tribes or religious groups mobilising to take control of state machinery for purposes of accumulating wealth or securing what they have illicitly grabbed. These are for sure banana states that would better work under pre-arranged agreement among the elite that offers some room for pursuit of economic progress Chinese style. Unfortunately, this latter formula has proven itself in so many places around the world. One just needs to look at South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and currently Vietnam and China to agree that democracy is not a pre-requisite for improvement of living standards of any populace.

Reuters must have more and more Isreali shareholders!

Here a bit of advice, we should get the hell out of Muslim lands and mind our own business, like trying to feed our ENTIRE population (we have starving people here), fix our horrible schools and our broken down infrastucture. Then, once we are done fixing our own country, we can worry about other countries!!!
