Democracy undone

Posted By on Wed, Jun 25, 2008 at 3:32 PM

Zimbabwe is imploding while the world watches.  Although the United Nations has called for a stop to President Robert Mugabe's murder and mayhem, it has not intervened in what is perhaps the most undemocratic election in recent years.  Mugabe's insistence on remaining president in spite of being voted out legally is further crippling an already troubled economy.  If what is happening in Zimbabwe is representative of a "democracy," then I am scared to see what it would look like if it were not.
