Article: Down with democracy! (in Dutch)

Article: Down with democracy! (in Dutch)

The Dutch free weekly, "Intermediair", a magazine directed at "highly educated" 25- to 45-year-olds, this week runs a cover story titled "Weg met de democratie!" ("Down with Democracy!"; my translation), authored by its editor-in-chief, Kees Versluis (38, 2011: pp. 22-7).

Lead (rough translation): "In search of alternative forms of popular consultation. Democracy does not work anymore. See euro crisis, the political deadlock in Belgium and the economic success of Asia. 'Democracy may become a danger to our future.'"

Anyone here who speaks Dutch, and could translate this article for me?
