Discussion Topic: Where is Democracy Going?

The topic for Discussion Night (Thursday, April 14) has just been announced:

Where is Democracy going? What negative aspects does it bring?

Is it acting in the interest of the state, or are there cases where it isn't, and why not?

Should governments make laws to protect people from hurting themselves?
