4. I Respectfully Disagree

I think that the only legitimate form of government is a Democracy where all people are heard and minority factions are protected from any Tyranny of the Majority. My point is that the Russian and Chinese people DO NOT have a say in how their Countries are run, and this is a major problem, for them and for the entire World.

Just worrying about America and leaving other Countries to the whims of Authoritarian Powers is isolationism and anti-democracy. In my opinion we can not afford that. It is a violation of the rights of the People when there is no Democracy, and that is a problem not just for the Russian and Chinese People, but also for the security of the entire World, including America.

We need Global Democracy for global peace. Every Nation deserves their own Democracy, and the entire world suffers a threat when there is no Democracy, and therefore no legitimate Government that protects and respects the rights of the People.
