Do we really need democracy ?
This question may sound weird at the times when the whole world is struggling to maintain peace and to establish democratic style of governing the countries. But the question is not perhaps whether we need it. The question is whether we can really have it. Nowadays the thing which is called democracy is actually far from being it. Whatever is implied into this meaning is not democracy itself. All over the countries which claim to be civilized, developed and prosperous it is a matter of a good taste to claim to be democratic and to give a hand to other countries with building up democracy, even in case they do not want it. And such help is realized through imposing ‘human friendly’ patterns of organizing the country (as if other peoples can’t see better what to do with their own states), through blackmailing governments to pass the laws, through investing into launching strikes, conflicts and revolutions, through bombing, putting into jail and suiting those who resist such a magnanimous thing as modern democracy. All this is the reason for me to be proud of Azerbaijan who proved to the whole world they are not going to pretend and play the fashionable game called democracy. People of Azerbaijan stated they are happy living in a country ruled in an authoritative way. All in all it makes no difference: the way of organizing the country is virtually the same. The only thing is that some people honestly admit having centralized power while others hypocritically call it democracy.
