Letting Democracy Flower

Woodrow Wilson said that our job is to make the world safe for democracy. Notice the order of things...the world has to be made safe and then democracy can flower. Not the other way round; we can't either force democracy, or keep doing things that prevent democracy from flowering and then complain about riots in the streets.
