A Democratic Genghis Khan?

Mongolia’s Ghengis Khan of the 12th-13th Centuries is now renown for spreading Democracy.

In 1990 Mongolia held a multi party election and by 1992 obtained itself a constitution.

According to history, Ghengis Khan promoted participatory government, rule by law, equality under the law,

and basic personal and human freedoms.

Portraits of Genghis Khan are common in Mongolia today.

Welcome. They had a lot written on him but it is surprising a man such as him would be given credit for democracy.

Thanks for the cute story between Tatty and Rotty, lol ! My first cat was the terror for all dogs in the neighborhood ! She ran behind all dogs and the dogs were so surprised usually they ran behind a cat.
