Okay, I mostly agree with your follow up post, but have one nitpick. The main difference between, say, Germany in the early 30's and a lot of the Islamic world where people can actually vote is that there's no real secular good-government agenda. A 1933 German still had lots of options to choose from. In places like Pakistan or the Palestinian Authority, the two flavors that the voter has to choose from seem to be "corrupt" and "brutal, but consistently so."

You know, I hesitate to get into a conversation about Israel, but ISTR that the conventional wisdom was that a lot of the folks in the Palestinian Authority who voted for Hamas were voting for an anti-corruption agenda rather than the Jew killing.
