G8 Expansion

More meaningful than the still-born debate over Security Council expansion is one over the so-called G8.

Christian Science Monitor correctly weighs in against this idea, except for democracies like India.

Considering shifts in demography and economics, the G-8 could indeed be more representative - but without ballooning. India, a democracy, seems like a prime candidate, while Russia, which is rolling back freedoms, is perhaps an undeserving member.

India should worry less about becoming a part of the G8, and worry more about curbing infanticide, class persecution, and government corruption.
