Came across this book. Found one particular quote from the back of the book particularly interesting:
‘The mantra in our Western society is that democracy equals freedom and prosperity. But are we in fact imposing our free-market democracy with the same arrogance that colonial missionaries claimed they were civilising poor natives a century ago? Is perhaps democracy merely a fig-leaf to protect strategic interests and access economic markets? Or is it simply that no one has yet had a better idea?
