...it has had its ups and downs over centuries.

Youíll have to provide a cite that democracy, in a form we might actually call fair, has been around for centuries. 

Sure, you can find some democracies older than 300 years, but these were hardly true democracies...   they were for the elite only, which is anathema to a real democracy. 

Women could vote starting in the early 1900ís....   you think there was true democracy before half the population had any sort of say?   I would argue that allowing white men only to run a country is not a democracy.
