Whither our democracy?

- SAM SV

Whether democracy, Thaksinocr­acy or Abhisitocr­acy, none is the best form of governance. They are only the least evil.

For any government that lacks credibilit­y to rule, or that steals from the people, or that strives to change criminals into innocents, democracy would be a far cry.

A proper democracy is a system that prospers in countries bestowed with a clean government that rules with integrity.

It is a wild goose chase to find one such government here. Has politics always been this dirty?
