Zafar Bangash Craps on "Democracy"

For you and me, democracy is the best possible system of governance because it's the only one predicated on and dedicated to the individual's freedom. For local Khomeinist Zafar Bangash, however, democracy, not to put too fine a point on it, sucks. He writes:
Democracy is a much used and abused term. It is essentially a tool in the hands of the rich and powerful to legitimize their ill-gotten gains.
In the West, democracy is used as a tool to create the illusion that the masses have a say in who should govern them to administer their affairs. A further illusion is that people are “free” to choose their leaders — when the options offered have already been pre-determined. The masses are essentially treated no better than mice and told they can choose between a black or white cat to “protect” them...
Yeah, Zaffy, democracy is vile. The sharia, though--now there's a grand old modus operandi that engenders a much better way of life.
There can be a fine line between Karl Marx and the Ayatollah Khomeini, and here Zaffy, loather of kafir democracy, has erased it. How lucky we Canadians are to have the likes of him in our free (for now, anyway) land!
