Randoms of March

Over at LewRockwell.com, says Dr. Thomas Sowell:

[Lee Kuan Yew's] example was especially striking in view of many in the West who seem to think that democracy is something that can be exported to countries whose history and traditions are wholly different from those of Western nations that evolved democratic institutions over the centuries.
Also at LewRockwell.com, writes Prof. Walter E. Williams:
The Economist magazine recently published “What’s gone wrong with Democracy … and what can be done to revive it?” The suggestion is that democracy is some kind of ideal for organizing human conduct. That’s a popular misconception.
Over at Target Liberty expresses Mr. Robert Wenzel:
Oh yeah, this really improves the functioning of government. Argentina, the Congo and Greece are among the 22 countries that coerce people into voting.
Over at The American Conservative, Prof. Kevin R.C. Gutzman reviews F.H. Buckley's The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America and Eric Nelson's Royalist Revolution: Monarchy and the American Founding.
