There are some things that sometimes make the implementation of democracy in a country can not be run with good. Like I often to see, not infrequently, some citizens abusing the interests of democracy for their own interests, such as being too free and do not obey the rules because they do not run a democracy well and do not pay attention to the limits in democracy. Then, in this era there arose a notion which then supports the operations of a democracy to be very constrained.

However, in the course of a democracy, it would appear the dilemmas that make the running of democracy itself becomes obstructed. For example, the government insisted to prohibit and eliminate the presence of fundamentalist movements themselves, this can be interpreted has closed the chance of a group to express its wishes.
