Let us argue that the essentials to create a platform for democratic choice are by implementing all of the following:
Justice for all: uncontaminated by political or other special interests, clan loyalties or bribes; with all judges of Speech: as exemplified by Radio, TV, print and electronic media.
Human Rights: expressed by the absence of arbitrary arrest and confinement; the superiority of due process, the illegality of torture – and similar abusive “maltreatment”.
Public Corruption: The recent examples of long time democratic countries ‘falling short’ has not been missed by the usual suspects. Most nations have laws against corruption but only in genuine democracies are these enforced against the bigger players – and not always then! This was shown by the recent British example of arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which had an investigation of big-time corruption arbitrarily shut down by UK government fiat. A version of ‘Don’t ask, Don’t tell’! Arms sales around the world have probably accounted for more bribery in more countries, than any other kind of international transaction – and that probably will continue in the future.
In Arab countries definition of the above concepts need to be corrected and understood. Constitutions usually satisfy such need, but unfortunately, ignorant traditional regimes negate such understanding. We may add the theologian thinking still leads almost all aspects of life. These two factors hinder the concept included above in practicing Justice, human rights, and free speech. www.dryahyatv.com
