Democracy or autocracy?
Last updated 9/18/2008 at Noon
The letter by Jon Monday in the August 28 Village News [“McCain could be worse than Bush”] is stunning. It seems he is against the U.S. in Iraq where we deposed a totalitarian despot and is for the (almost totally) autocratic Russia attacking a democratic Georgia.
Can we conclude from that that he favors totalitarianism over democracy? If that is not the case, it would be nice if he would explain when totalitarians are good and when they are not good. Also, what is his position on Chavez in Venezuela? Does he think he is better than democratically elected Uribe in Columbia?
