The smelly effects of democracy

A cabinet minister in Malawi explains on Yahoo News
Since the country embraced multi-party politics 16 years ago people had felt free to fart anywhere, said Chaponda. "It was not there during the time of dictatorship because people were afraid of the consequences. Now because of multipartism or freedom, people would like to fart anywhere".

Malawian lawmakers will next week debate a law change to criminalise public farting.

does that mean in Switzerland - one of the world's most democratic countries - we are free to fart wherever we like (not in Rigot, though)??
