this is a good idea. I'm sorry that there is not such group in Poland. But... I'd like to have answer to this question: could we have better system than a democracy.
Someone (I think Churchill) said that democracy is the worst system we have but we haven't anything else. One professor from France (I don't remember the name) said that democracy means we always choose the people we don't like because their opponents are worse. He said that he always must vote on people who aren't good in his opinion.
Come to Poland or another country which was under Soviet Union occupation. You will see all the mistakes of democracy. Maybe democracy must have time to grow or maybe we must wait for political Einstein or another Montesquieu...
