Ame Info Reports:

    Im hoping they teach it throughout the schooling and college process, but what can you expect from a non-democratic country, they’r always hoping that the people are not intellegent enough to understand democracy. Most people in this region of the world are not aware of what real democracy is, read my non related article about pakistani politics and its impact on global affairs.
