Democracy, Plutocracy or Civil war

From the laymen’s perspective, it is a rather thorny position to impose a democratic structure on a sovereign state upon a military invasion. Thus the question is proffered, how can one exist in a democratic state when it is thrust upon them without the benefit of self determination? One such example of this, outside of holding an election where people are unaware of the candidates, or where people from other countries can cast votes without knowing or hearing any political positions of those running for office, regards some of the changes that have been instituted by the U.S. government without the purview of the Iraqi population. The Former American Administrator of the Iraqi Coalition ProvisionalAuthority updated law makes saving seeds planting, practiced byThe majority of Iraqi farmers to now are illegal. Based on the current provision of the law as documented in the Coalition ProvisionalAuthority Order 81, Iraqi farmers are allowed only to plant seeds obtained from licensed and authorized U.S. distributors. The order, called the “Patent, Industrial design, undisclosed information, integrated circuits and plant variety law has some strange implications for a purported democratic state. On the outside, it looks as if the only benefits being delivered are for U.S and Western multinational companies like Halliburton and seed making giants Archer Daniel Midland and Monsanto Company. The Monsanto company by the way, just reported that it will be spending $1.4 billion to buy a California company called Seminis Inc. that will take its molecular breeding technology to the next level, making the company the largest seed distributor in the world. There will not be a democracy in Iraq if people are not allowed the right to self determination, instead, there will either be a plutocracy - The corruption of democracy designed to benefit politicians, corporations and the media - or worse, civil war
