Some governments are undeniably representative, although their own constitutional arrangements are sometimes chided as an elected dictatorship. Other countries are subjected to governments which are definitely not representative. Where such countries are identified it is assumed that the inhabitants would immediately welcome the substitution of the government which they have for one answerable to democratic principles, but even under the yoke of tyranny, not all the inhabitants would welcome terrorist violence.
