Democracy can be easily manipulated to create disruption.


Democracy can be easily disrupted and miscalculated by the individual, media houses and the leaders, on the name of freedom of expression, they cross every limit in terms of it, in particular, media house is the major source of disruption in the current days, most of the media are biased, although media is one the important part of democracy but they are not playing their part. Unchecked social media is adding new challenges to it, and it’s necessary to take up steps to sensor their malign activity by the governments.
Democracy is the most complex political system, and it needs a huge infrastructure to sustain. If someone looks into the world’s biggest democracy India, one can easily understand how the lack of enough resources could be fatal for it, the judiciary is under-performing due to the insufficient judge’s count and improper infrastructure.
It provides equal space for every individual so it is their responsibility to understand it and practice it fairly. The society filled with illiteracy is not fit for democracy, and in such case, the space for authoritarian is always there. There are many countries, an African nation, South Asian countries, and Eastern Europe they are actually a democracy but the people are still being dictated by bureaucrats, local leaders, and parliamentarian, as the people are unaware of the system and responsibility.
Advanced technology like data analytics, data-modeling, data-extraction, and big-data are being used by the political parties and leaders throughout the world to manipulate the mind of the electors, the win of Donald Trump and Brexit are such examples. The disruption creates chaos all around, it takes the shape of demonstration, protestation, rioting, looting and sometimes arms conflict, it happens even in the fair democracies like the United Kingdom, the US and other western countries, millions of million dollar financial losses take place due to vandalism and hundreds of people are getting killed every year in this process around the world. The institutional failure in the democracy is another source of disruption, many times autonomy of different institutions get risked due to the ambitious leader at the center, Turkey is one of the victims of it, the work sphere is undefined in Pakistan which results in the periodic military coup. Recently the institutional failure can be seen in the Maldives where President is dictating his decision and misusing power to suffocate judiciary and opposition. 
The evolution of new technology and revolution in the communication industry have been bringing in new challenges for democracy, which is being used to manipulate the mind of the people by the governments and opposition, this has become bigger challenges than the institutional conflict in the recent year. The lack of resources could be fatal for it, which helps in creating an imbalance among the autonomous institutions.
