Democracy is the government of the people, by the people and for the people.That's probably why it works
Come now, the US is not an example of government of, by, and for the people. It's, essentially, an oligarchy -- government of, by, and for the rich. But the US is incredibly weathy. So, there's lots to go around, and virtually the entire population lives in relative comfort.

It has little to do with 'democracy', imo.
