Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 2, 2013 3:36 PM

Pulchritude might mean beautiful, but the way the word sounds in the English language is anything but.  The word puissant might mean tough and strong, but it sounds, well....never mind.   Some of these "unusable" words are lessons in cultural interactions and connotations that go beyond the simple dictionary definition.

A User's Guide to Democratic Transitions

A User's Guide to Democratic Transitions | IB 20th Century World | Scoop.it
A how-to guide for reformers around the world.

 

Let's face it: Democracy is struggling. Sure, it surged after the fall of the Berlin Wall, reaching a high-water mark in the first years of the 21st century with various inspirational "colored" revolutions. But then democratic gains in Eastern Europe, Africa, and Latin America stalled, or even deteriorated, as fragile democracies struggled under the enormous challenge of governance. The expensive U.S. failures to impose democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan haven't helped. Today, many countries that once seemed budding with democratic promise now appear mired in political infighting, beset by power grabs by ousted elites, or trapped in downward spirals of poverty and unemployment. And the seemingly inexorable rise of autocratic China, in sharp contrast with gridlocked western democracies, has some wondering whether democracy is even worth pursuing.
