Fragile Democracy

Pakistan had their elections this week. It is the first time that one democratic elected government is transferred to another democratic elected government in that country.
That's great. But It wasn't peaceful. Democracy is not easy.
And it is silly to think that it will ever be. Democracy has never naturally emerged and it has never naturally survived anywhere where its citizens are not willing to protect it.
Think about it, America.
