BBC: Global Dissatisfaction with Government is Healthy Sign

An interesting statement of the popular views on government. The results in these polls seem quite intuitive when I first looked at them. However, at second glance I was a bit puzzled at the numbers regarding fair elections. I feel that many of the dissatisfied may come as much from the United States as from Egypt or Russia. This comparison relies on a bit of exaggeration, but I think it is important to contemplate the relationship between our dissatisfaction with Congress and the White House acting in the public interest and according to the public will to the electoral process that creates such pronounced partisan rivalries.
