RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - (Opinion) Is Democracy the best form of government? Do people have the right to question it? Do they have the freedom to question whether computer voting machines can be hacked and corrupted? Or, are such discussions criminal, subject to arrest and imprisonment?
Some countries like the U.S. say democracy is critically important, a fundamental human right.
Other countries are nondemocratic, such as China. For centuries some European countries and Brazil were ruled by kings, queens, emperors, and dictators.
Democracy has been a fairly recent experiment. In Brazil, does anyone dispute that Getulio Vargas was one . . .
