at the beginning of democracy only men could vote, now most voters are women.
politics is based on feelings and womens rights, hence lots of sweet talk BS.
great barrier dying - expect lots of talk, little action (women dominate voting)
UN (amalgamation of universal suffrage democracies) - talkers and little action.
