If Ethiopia is approaching a democracy then it is not currently a democracy, if it is currently a democracy then it is not approaching a democracy.

Pro can only prove the resolution true one way or the other and has yet to do either.

India, Japan, South Korea, Tunisia are democracies and none of them are Western nations.

"If Ethiopia is approaching a democracy then it is not currently a democracy, if it is currently a democracy then it is not approaching a democracy."
Hate semantic arguments so much. The debate is about whether Ethiopia is a democracy AND/OR moving towards a democracy. Pro misinterpreted the forward slash to make a stupid semantic argument. What could have been a great debate has been ruined.

Ethiopia can never achieve western democracy because simply it is not a western country and will always have influence from other countries in the region.
