At Least It's Original

Wars, Civil disturbances, "we don't need elections!" all excuses bandied about by authoritarian regimes to explain the lack of Democracy in their country.

You may remember in December I posted an article asking just where is Bhutan headed? A short summary can tell you that the article addressed the moves towards a pluralistic, elected government in this small Himalayan Kingdom. However it was only the other day that I discovered this article from February.

You can pretty much throw out my old points - a monarchy using such poor excuses won't be heading towards Democracy anytime soon.
