All Democracy is Good - Redux

I won't rehash George Will's typically brilliant, contrarian take in today's Washington Post, except to copy a couple of quotes:

"The beginnings of reform and democracy in the Palestinian territories are now showing the power of freedom to break old patterns of violence and failure."
-- George W. Bush
State of the Union, 2005

"The effect of liberty to individuals is, that they may do what they please; we ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risk congratulations."
-- Edmund Burke

Old Ed Burke was a good egg.
