Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think you have to ditch democracy outright. Only "Democracy": when American politicians say democracy, they mean US style democracy, with its specific institutions, traditions, and its heavy emphasis on the economy. Other countries can get democracy in other ways. And it should have domestic sources, simple telling them what to do is not democracy but playing (being forced to play) democracy.
