In every small country in the world today, learning from the larger nations, especially towards the issue of political stability and democracy, is a very important aspect. This is something that has been in the world for very many years. There is always an expectation that a stable country provides some very good lessons when it comes to the rule of law and democracy to the smaller nations that have young democracies (Pinterest).
In this case, the United States has always been an essential reference point to a huge number of countries that have been looking to have some mature democracies. It currently remains as one of the oldest democracies in the world, which is the main reason why most of the smaller countries have been trying to replicate its democracy and constitution in their own countries with the hope of getting some better systems. However, according to Asot Michael, it is now very important that the country, Antigua and Barbuda, comes up with a homemade political system that will generate its own political stability and peace within the country. In his view, the United States has significantly lost credibility when it comes to the rule of law and the issue of democracy in the last few months, which is something that should not be taken lightly.
In the view of Asot Michael, the fact that a president in power failed to recognize and appreciate that another candidate has won a fair and democratic election seems to be the source of the insurrection that was witnessed on January 6th. However, this was not the only incident where the country failed to meet its high standards in adhering to the issue of democracy and the rule of law. In the last four years, Asot Michael has noted the dwindling influence of the United States on the international stage. There has been an administration that has been at the helm of some of the considerable cases of unlawful activities that have significantly affected the country. Therefore, Antigua and Barbuda cannot afford to go through the same route that the United States is experiencing but deserves to formulate its path.
