Who needs an animal farm

"We did not have a revolution to have a democracy" - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's new president come August.

Gasp. And that's why I've never been keen on revolutions really.

On another hand - raises issue - what is a democracy now? Or what is one understood to be. Because frankly, a lot of them aren't displaying especially democratic traits. Between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and various patriot acts it's all a bit weird really. Is there one single democracy left, anywhere in the world?
