Folks in the countries run by dictators can see that life is, while far from perfect, generally much better in countries run by elected politicians who are at least occasionally accountable to the people who elect them. They just want the same circumstances we already have, and rightly so. The question is simply whether they can organize themselves well enough to get what they want.People are getting uppity. China, Iran...and a bunch of the stans. Various forms of fecal matter may hit several propellers in the near future.
