Syria: Authoritarianism

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Syria, Elections, Governance, Politics

Syrian comment on the cultural inclination which was cited by a study that claims that there is no anti-democratic attitude within the Mideast cultures.

Syrian said: “While its true that an individual may not object to a democratic form of government does not explain his acceptance of the alternative. Syrians have been subject to authoritarian rule, with very short periods of semi-democratic government, since the beginning of time and they never seem to have objected to it on a scale that would force a change.
