Give me an example for a successful "right idea".

Wrong. Governments can be easily exchanged, and when they are exchanged, it
is not due to the great democracy but due to shifts in power relationships.
The Morgan Banker group owned both US political groups, the Democrats and
the Republicans, for a long time. Presidents can be shot or destroyed with
the mass media. Examples for the former are Kennedy and Lincoln, examples
for the latter are about everyone else, including Clinton. Take a look at
the recent events in Belgium. And read Quigley, Carroll: "Tragedy and Hope".
