Default World on the brink of ending?

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

The average age of the world's great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to complacency;
from complacency to apathy;
from apathy to dependency;
from dependency back again to bondage."

I think a dictatorship would be fine as long as it was not Bush who was in charge.

I'm all for political theory, and one of the most interesting classes I took while at college was all about it, but I gotta ask: just how many failed democratic governments are there out there? Contrast that to the number of failed dictatorships, and I start feeling a little better about the end of our government.

Oh, and democracy ending != world ending.
