Democracy Needs Constant Care

Reading the remarks of international leaders, after the events of last week, one stood out for me.
Hassan Rouhani, president of Iran, our adversary, stated, “Above all, this shows how fragile and vulnerable Western democracy is.”
He was right, but not in the snarky way he intended. Democracy is indeed fragile and vulnerable. It needs constant care, vigilance and protection because there will always be those misguided individuals who try to break it.
