    The EU and the USA consider themselves the most developed democracies in the world. And not only telling other countries how “to behave”. Spain is a member country of the EU. I do not know much about it but following the news recently I have figured out there is one region within the country, Catalonia, which is calling for independence. So, the government of the region held a referendum on independence which was not liked by the Central government in Madrid. And as a result of conducting the referendum most of the ousted Catalan leaqders had to flee as charges of rebellion have been brought against them. Interesting kind of democracy. To conclude in a postive way on this topic, the leaders fled to Belgium which is another country of the EU.
