Since the Western powers have become a very powerful influence delving in the affairs of the entire world, it might be well for Western policymakers to consider that democracy may not be the ideal political system for all nations. Many Westerners believe that democracy is the only correct political system, but they do not consider its industrial context. Democracy, Capitalism, Communism and Socialism emerged to fulfill the needs of industrial societies. They may be the correct solutions for industrial societies, but evidence suggests that they are not the correct structures for non-industrial societies. If this were not the case, these political philosophies would have emerged much earlier in history, and fewer instances of other systems would remain in non-industrial societies today.
