The whole thing is wildly dissapointing, but at least it's a chip in the idea that we can bring democracy somewhere and they will magically turn into a liberal western society.
Yes, that sums it up pretty accurately.
Democracy is wildly overrated, It most often does not lead to happy and fair communities.
There are benevolent dictators that do a better job, like the Emirs in the United Arab Emirates.
They have open days where every single citizen has access to for whatever they want to say or complain.
Anyway, it looks as if the Rohyingas are getting screwed.
An unhinged anti-zionist said "Israel is not a Jewish State" and that made me laugh a lot.
