  • Pure Democracies, Yes

    Here's the biggest problem with the democratic process: people are stupid. There's really no sugarcoating it. We may be on top of the food chain, but that doesn't make us very bright, intellectually. We're naturally predisposed to supernatural thinking, irrational fears, and irrational decision-making processes (usually in the form of a heuristic). We can't seem to figure out how money works, or promote solid societal order (in the long run). The only reason we, as a species, made it to the top of the world is because we are really freaking good at killing other things, even our own kind. Now, would you want "the will of the people" running your life? True majoritarian principles stifle the minority and hinder real progress.

  • People may be created equal, but that does not mean they are equally informed.

    Unless your voting power were somehow made proportional to your objective understanding of the issues, the idea of giving everyone equal participation in political decisions is ludicrous. The only capacity in which democracy could work, is if all decisions were made as locally as possible where everyone could congregate and commune only with those with the same willingness to stay informed and view the world through an objective lens.

  • DEMOCRAcy Is Stupid

    Democracy simply doesn't work for the reason that so many people just vote for their own benefits not for the benefit of other people. For example business workers will vote for business tax cuts, not what is right for the country. The idea is a good one but doesn't work in practice

  • Suvky butt face

    Democracy is not wise Democracy is the 'rule by people' which means any legal citizens (adult male originated from Athen) can vote, introduce a new law, take part in governing... However these people were chosen by a lottery, so now it is literally anyone can do the things listed above. Even the un-educated, pre justice, selfish, irrational ones can. Let me ask you, do you want a stupid, selfish, irrational person to govern your country/city? No! Therefore democracy is not wise.

  • I don't eve know

    Because if we did't have it many people would die and there would be consequences and that would not be good for us and foe the people around us because having a no democracy might give us freedom but doesent give us organization and dosent show us right from wrong

  • I think so

    People cannot attend to their rights in an direct way, you know! So I say no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

  • People have freedom

    People have freedom and the choice to do eat they want they can as much money as they want by selling what they want at any price they want and then choose with their own free will what to do with it . Democracy gives people the freedom to choose who they want running their government. With democracy people can practice any religion they want and believe anything they want and also have the right to say it

  • Communism is the way to go

    Communism is like the mustache on hitler, well groomed, a little creepy, yet gets the job done. My Master, SwagLord Wilson once taught me that Communism is the very best. He also taught me how to take over the world in the communist name. And his name is JOHN CENA!

  • Democracy is really awesome

    People can tell the government what they want so the state is shaped to everyone's likes. Therefore democracy is really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really.

  • Democracy produces consistently good leaders.

    The need to be elected ensures that 9 times out of 10, a very intelligent/educated person will be elected. In a monarchy, you could get a guy like Kaiser Wilhelm every couple generations. The people may be stupid, but the leaders are not. Democracy is also less susceptible to revolts.

  • Democracy works when numbers are small and society containable.

    Democracy is an ideal form of government when numbers are small. The problem with democracy is that there is a correlation between the growth in number of voters to corruption. When population numbers begin too large, as they are in the United States, the idea of majorities is abandoned in the name of special interest minorities attempting to sway the vote of majorities.

  • Democracy has done a reasonable job so far

    Yes democracy is not perfect. I don't even think that we should keep it. I believe in either moving to a participatory or anarcho-capitalistic approach. But to say democracy is bad is pretty harsh. We've come a long way in today's society. Tolerance, education and economic development have occurred and continue to occur in democratic countries. Freedom is an important ideal and democracy is one powerful tool for achieving it.
