Glen Hoffman Posted over 1 year ago Should we force democracy? I don't think so. Afghanistan and Iraq are examples where democracy would have a very difficult time thriving. The people there don't have a sense of individual liberties, but theirs is more of a collective/community based culture. Like a tribe maybe. Democracy probably can only work if a people as individuals possess the right moral foundation. At least in order to thrive, because we need most people willing to obey the law of the land. I'm going to paraphrase here, but John Adams said that our form of government or our constitution was designed for a moral and religious people and inadequate for any other group.
