5% of Third World Countries are not dictatorships (but they are not necessarily democracies). 5% are anti-Western Dictatorships. 90% are pro-Western Dictatorships. The definition of a Dictator is one who frauds elections to gain power and/or to remain in power. Dictatorship is primarily about money, stealing it from the People and the Government, and sharing it with foreign companies, governments and Heads of State.
Would it surprise anyone that the West is pathologically afraid of Fraud Proof Voting Systems which would peacefully eliminate their Big Buddy pro-Western Dictators? Even the concept scares the hell out of our Western Leaders and Institutions.
But paradoxically, the on-going and accelerating Despot Depositions render the Fear of the West obsolete – now the West will have to embrace Fraud Proof Voting Systems in order to empower the People to keep the crazy guys out of power, and to remove them after 4-5 years if they do get into power through subterfuge. The problem is that the West does not like to admit that it has been wrong, and is very slow to respond and change, especially when that change requires a 180 degree turn.
