Democratie Curacao 3.0

Dit onderwerp was reeds meerdere malen aan de orde gekomen.  Ook heb ik gewezen op het feit dat in het Oosten anders wordt gedacht over democratie. Een citaat uit Singapore van 2009:

"Democracy is a better form of government than all the alternatives. However, democracy does not guarantee good governance and does not solve all problems. A democratic government can be a corrupt government.  Some democracies are incompetent.  Election does not guarantee a competent government. People may elect incompetent persons or a group of people who are interested only in enriching themselves and have no vision for the country and no commitment to the people. So, while I beleive in democracy, I am also very aware of its shortcomings. It is not a panacea. It is, however, the least bad form of government, as Churchill once said"

De volledige tekst treft u hier aan.

Als ik aan de situatie op Curaçao denk, denk ik steeds aan deze tekst.  De conclusie is dat onze democratie pas zal werken als politici en kiezers beter zijn opgeleid over het systeem.
