Tudom, hogy per pillanat ez nem illik ide annyira, de írtam az Economistba a kedvenc témámról egy jó hosszút, tessék kattintani.
Crying for freedom

A disturbing decline in global liberty prompts some hard thinking about what is needed for democracy to prevail
MORE than at any time since the cold war, liberal democracy needs defending. That warning was issued recently by Arch Puddington, a veteran American campaigner for civil and political rights around the world.
This week the reasons for his concern became clearer. Freedom House, a lobby group based in Washington, DC (where Mr Puddington is research director), found in its latest annual assessment that liberty and human rights had retreated globally for the fourth consecutive year. It said this marked the longest period of decline in freedom since the organisation began its reports nearly 40 years ago.
