Politicians, those who profit from the present situation, and extremists will probably oppose this idea. However, quality of life is an experience that is perceived as a whole. A person cannot live happily in an environment where everyone else is immersed in misery and poverty. People who benefit from the current situation should understand that the quality of life would improve for everyone, improving their lives as well.
If the majority of people understand what democracy really is and the potential it has to improve everyone’s lives no amount of suppression could stop its spread.
