If a population is very likely to vote for an extermist party, should we help them become a democracy? Or more importantly, should we actively try to stop them from becoming democratic?
I'm thinking off course of the election of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, or Hamas in Gaza, or the Nazis in Germany.
Democracy is power to the people, but in some cases, do we really want certain groups of people to have power?
Put controversially: Should we be supporting Assad, in Syria?
