Quigley explains why democracy is so rare in human history

Carroll Quigley thinks citizen soldiers create democracy

Carroll Quigley thinks when citizens can become soldiers with little training, and when weapons are cheap and easy to use, it leads to Democracy.

But that doesn’t explain why when CIA funnels cheap weapons and easy to use weapons into nations, democracy doesn’t automatically happen. Also countries like India got democracy without citizen weapons.
