Noam Chomsky has a book, which I read for the first time when I was in Spain, called 'Fear of Democracy'. There is your answer. Fear of democracy. In Honduras, they had a sham democracy. It was run by elites, what was called a liberal democracy, but in reality was a false democracy.

OVERVIEW: HONDURAS

The strains being suffered by Honduras coincided with the advent, in November 2013 of the country’s Presidential elections. The Libre coalition’s candidate, Mrs Castro de Zelaya (the wife of the former – and deposed – President Zelaya) appeared in mid 2013 to have a small edge in the opinion polls.  This was the first Honduran election with so many parties – eight in all – presenting candidates. The opinion polls suggested that there were two major contenders, Mrs Castro de Zelaya for the Libre grouping and Juan Orlando Hernandez for the National party. Inevitably, ‘Evita’ theories prevailed as speculation grew over the extent to which the former President was the power behind Mrs Castro's candidacy. At political gatherings Libre Party supporters often cheered more for the former President than they did for his wife. Mrs Castro, meanwhile, had pledged to ‘re-found’ Honduras, attributing the parlous state of Honduras’ politics and its economy to a century of rule by the two traditional parties.
