Globally, democracy is eroding, claims Prof. Diamond.
Globally, democracy is eroding, claims Prof. Diamond.

He made the observation that, in contrast to ten years earlier, when people had fewer grounds for grievances against their governments, there are now fewer democracies in the world.

Prof. Diamond listed several nations where insurgencies have taken place, including Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger.

There are fewer democracies now than there were ten years ago due to the global decrease in democracy. More nations have embraced democracy than have moved there.

Take Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Tunisia as examples; if you venture further north, the only Arab nations that formerly enjoyed democracy have lost it.
