    Democracy has become more globalized as nations around the world increasingly abandon non-democratic forms of government in favor of democratic ones. Democracy has become more of a standard in global politics. As democratic nations increase trade among themselves, policies like isolationism and nationalism make far less sense. Borders blur through free trade agreements and the creation of economic zones. And as nations begin to take the interests of their partner nations into consideration when drafting laws and regulations, something known as a global democracy begins to take shape.
    @IamPamela313 I'm not seeing the same thing. I see dictatorships that have leaned towards capitalism, but to say that they are up and coming democracies I don't believe the two are the same. I believe as crude as this thinking my be, there are societies that have not yet evolved enough to fully understand or appreciate what a democracy is. Mostly due to illiteracy. That's why people the likes of Saddam Hussein were able to control the masses.

    I would just like to say that Pamela 313 really gives could Questions thank you Pamela

    Global Democracy and its Difficulties will appeal to a range of academics, scholars and students who work across fields such a political theory, international law, comparative politics and political economy. It will be of particular interest to those with an interest in the political, economic, legal and moral aspects of democratization.
    I believe it is very easy to confuse democracy with capitalism. If you look at what has happened in China. They have embraced capitalism with a vengance, and yet remain about as democratic as Atilla The Hun.
    Democracy is rule by the people, however people can't rule you can't have mob rule. You need a republic where you vote to have a representative represent the mass. Altho as we know that has a lot of problems also, it's the best plan we know.

    It would mean the end of our Republic as we know it. As it is more than half of the American people think the US is a Democracy, when we are not.
    The USA is a democratically elected Representative Republic. If the majority ruled here in the US woman and blacks would still not be voting.
