Not a hard coice to make when it's headed your way, after you've seen what the other two planes could do.

Why do people keep thinking our government spreads democracy out of the goodness of their hearts?!

spreading democracy through force to countries that are not ready for it is a stupid policy.

the masses have to want it and pull it off of their own accord.

its sort of like how Communism was destined to fail in Russia. Lenin did not follow Marxist theory and thus his revolution was flawed from the get go. Again, the masses have to want it. If they don't, it will fail.

Good point on lenin not following Marxist theory and having to industrialise at the expense of the peasant farmers who were actually the majority at the time of the revolution.
