“Imposed Democracy” hinders the development of the nation

08/12/2014


For some people are trying to promote and contribute to the so-called “Western democracy”, whether they do not know that imposing democracy is the cause of instability in some countries and even in the West - the so-called “democracy” is also in crisis?
Reports of daily news on the military situation as well as the unrest in many countries are now part of the facts which prove that “imposed democracy” can not exist if it is inconsistent with the political, economic, cultural conditions, especially when the request is not in itself a nation. What about the crisis of democracy in the West, it is best to consult the scientists living and working there. For instance, when talking about the crisis of democracy, the Western political scientists often use the concept of “political frustration”. According to them, “political frustration” is very close to “crisis of democracy”.
The concept of “political frustration"”has been used since the 80s of last century but the crisis of democracy in the West began in 1960s. Mr. Ernst Fraenkel was one of the first authors studied this phenomenon. After studying the electoral process of Parliament Germany in 1965, in an essay published in 1966, he coined the term translated as “parliamentary boredom”.
Thus, a question arised: How is the crisis of Western democracy imposed and how to recognize? Many studies of political scientists and numerous articles in newspapers, magazines in the region have used German replied.
The rift between governer and the people is greater, namely with all the political problems. This fact may be pointed in the United States. The political conflicts have degraded into a feud which is entire visible and heavily ideological there. Politics is hatred, the enmity is growing. Washington is a synonym for bad things... Many voters themselves isolated and did not want to be bothered. Our political system has lost count of politics. Election takes no significant to replace the political system. We really do not have a choice because essentially all parties have an equal promise and eventually act in the same way.
In many other European countries, the crisis of democracy is equally visible. Gert Scobels - a journalist and philosopher,also wrote about this phenomenon: “No long ago, a scientist told me that everywhere in Europe, for example in Italy, France and other countries, he felt the scary recession of democracy. Election is still taking place but the election has become a media war and people are passive, apathetic and explicit. The transparency of the political process decreases while the power of economic elites increases.
For a long time, the leaders in the Western countries have been aware of the crisis of democracy and promised to do all best to change the situation. But observer the election process in the Parliament of Saxony State, a state with a population of four million, the sixth of the total population of the 16 states of Germany, the crisis of democracy continues according to the reports of DPA on September 1st, 2014, only 49.02% of voters .
The simple but reliable experience is that when voting participation rate decrease meaning that Sscial disparities increase. So far, the researchers still debate about the causes of the crisis of “imposed democracy in the Western”. According to them, one of the causes is the poverty of the people, a huge gap between rich and poor; the poor increasingly poor, the rich are getting richer. Jobs is shrinking due to stiff competition from Asia - Pacific. In the past year, the number of people living in poverty increased in many Western countries, especially in Greece. According to many social organizations, in the EU, one of every four people is living in poverty. This suggests that although we do not deny the fact that many elite, precious values of mankind was born from Western countries and absorbed  by many countries including Vietnam, they should also be aware that “Western imposed democracy” is not a universal model even to prevent and combat the development of other nations.

Democracy always has skeptics

A third of all democracies imposed by one nation on another fail within the first 10 years of their establishment.

Strong democracies, such as the ones set up in Germany and Japan, that last beyond 20 to 30 years seem to survive indefinitely.

Vân Nhàn 8/12/14 14:54

75 percent of weak democracies, where elections are held but the civic institutions that shore up a democracy are weak or missing, die within the first 30 years.

Trying to create a democracy in an ethnically diverse society is very dicey and historically very difficult, so to expect the opposite in Iraq runs counter to what has happened historically.

Lê Tín 8/12/14 14:56

There is one large exception to their finding: India, with its myriad internal divisions, but which still has become a strong democracy.

Quốc Cường 8/12/14 14:57

Civic culture and a strong desire for representative government undoubtedly play a role in whether stable democracies emerge.

Huy Lâm 8/12/14 14:58

The chance of reestablishing democracy there will be even dimmer than it was before the war.

Quốc Kiên 8/12/14 14:58

Imposed democracies that fail seem to undermine subsequent attempts at democracy.

Phạm Hiếu 8/12/14 14:59

When an imposed democracy fails, citizens learn that democratic institutions are not effective in dealing with the problems in their societies, so the society becomes less likely to push for democracy in the future.
