What is democracy?

I was in Dara-e-nur dis­trict of Nan­garhar yes­ter­day. It’s a very remote dis­trict in the mid­dle of nowhere. All moun­tains. I saw this guy who was rid­ing on his motor­cy­cle along with three other friends. I asked them, “why are you four peo­ple rid­ing on one motor­cy­cle?” They said, “it’s democ­racy.” You do what you want and feel like doing.

    That’s a fan­tas­tic, if flawed, def­i­n­i­tion of democracy.
