Why does the Western world think democracy is a magical, catch all solution?
I believe that the west (Christianity) basically believes in free will as the base for both religion and government, moreso than most other cultures that are still mired in theocratic control or have recently broken from it. We prefer to lead ( or fool ourselves into believing that we lead) rather than to be led. This has made it easier for democracy to catch on in the west than elsewhere.
