The worlds's "democracies" seem to be in a bit of a rut.

Yoon, who won the presidency in 2022 by a margin of less than one percentage point, has seen his support ratings plunge to a low of 21% in one public opinion poll.

You gotta give this guy some credit. It takes a real leader, a real President, a real MAN (or WOMAN) to admit they screwed something up and take responsibility for it.

And everybody does.

I'd rather be in a democracy where ya can vote out a leader ya don't like, than in a country where ya have no say at all whether the leader stays or goes

I can't remember the last time a country's leader admitted to mistakes. In fact, I can't remember that happening at all. Yoon should, and probably will, earn points from South Korea's people. If he makes moves to correct his course, well, that's a gutsy guy.
