As we all know that India is a very huge country with a huge variety in the society. Keeping this point in mind the revolutionaries had chosen democracy as the most suitable form for the bright future of the country. It was the demand of that time. But now the time has changed. People has changed and so their views. This created a imbalance in the society.

Every debate begins with how the resolution is interpreted. Since CON has neglected to do so, the PRO interpret the resolution for the round.

In this debate there are two statements.

CON: Democracy is not a suitable form of government.
PRO: Democracy is a suitable form of government.

The word "suitable" implies a fairly relative standard--we'll think of it as "possible" for the sake of clarity.

Let's break this down before we get to the CON's opening argument. First, what does the CON case mean? With no conflicting interpretation, it will be interpreted as meaning that "Democracy is not a possible form of government."

The PRO stance is then "Democracy is a possible form of government."

In response to the India argument:

1. Illegitimate Argument.

By this I mean that one case example does not disprove the possibility of democracy is any situation. Any system of government can be disproved in this manner if this type of argument is considered legitimate. The failure of any one dictatorship could prove that all dictatorships are unsuitable--that is simply false.

2. Democracy is always possible--under certain criteria.

A common mistake made by people is assuming all democracies are built alike. They wonder why nations like India haven't had the same success at the United States. The simple fact is that the US's democracy succeeded because of certain criteria being filled. The Criteria for Democracy are: Opportunity, an Educated Society, and Moral responsibility. Without these, a democracy cannot prosper. But if they are filled--as they were at the start of the US--a democracy is certainly suitable.

Well, Political Science says it is dictatorships. But I think history would disagree?
