The other day a German tv documentary1 illustrated why democracy has become diarrhea of various origin:

There is a corresponding tendency to the decline in voters turnout. Those who are elected in the Bundestag are almost always academics. The proportion of delegates who have attended a college or university has increased from 74 to 83 percent since 1990. Although the proportion of academics in the total population has also increased, but only to 18%. There are about 80 lawyers among the current parliamentary members, but only one butcher. One mason, two nurses, one miner, and one locomotive driver.
