  • Democracy is the best form of government

    As democracy means rule of people ... That is of the people for the people and by the people. Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives. Democracy is the best form of government simply because no other form of government is known to work well. Democracy may have its flaws but all in all it works very fluidly. Some plus points of having a democratic form of government:-
    1. Freedom
    2. Democracy represents the views and notions of all the citizens of the country, whether majorities or minorities.
    3. It helps in solving conflicts and quarrels in a better way.
    4. It provides a dignity to the people.
    5. Democracy allows various people to rule the country through the representatives.
    6. It also allows people to express themselves clearly and freely.
    7. It Respects & promotes Human Rights
    8. In this form of government all people are equal before the law.
    9. Democracy is the only form of government where the people can voice their opinion.
    10. In my view there is no other alternative form of government better than a democracy.

  • DEMOCRACY is the best form of govt.

    Yes democracy is the best form of govt.

    It grants us many things.
    1.Right to speech.
    2.Right to information.
    3.Right to vote and etc.
    It represents each and every citizen equally whether you are poor or you are rich.
    In a monarchy or dictatorship no one can say or present their point of view. They have to follow what a single man says but in democracy we have been granted by RIGHT TO SPEECH.

  • Yes democracy is the best form of government.

    Democracy is the best form of government simply because no other form of government is known to work well. Democracy may have it's flaws but all in all it works very fluidly. Socialism, for example, does not even come close to the best form of government. One can easily see this in Greece's current state. Democracy has never led to complete government disorder like one can see Socialism does.

  • Yes democracy is the best form of government

    Democratic states nearly always have freer people than autocratic states. They obviously have the right to vote for their government so by extension deciding the policy of their nation and what their nation should be like. They have more freedom of speech and expression than in autocracies. In particular they are free to criticize their own government.

  • Yes

    I feel that it is because it allows us the freedom to choose. The majority of our country is allowed to choose what they feel is best for them. It is not just one person deciding what they think is best for everyone else. Democracy will always win out over other forms of government.

  • Most Stable Form Yet

    A democracy seems to be the most stable form of government yet. No one person has power. No one ideology is deemed better than another. In a democracy, if something doesn't work, it can and should be changed by the populace. Theocracies, monarchies and socialism all have their downsides. Democracy isn't perfect, but that form of government seems to be the most peaceful, especially in America.

  • Yes, if not then what would the people will chose other than democracy,. Monarchy, I suppose not.

  • Monarchy is best

    Because in Saudi there is a monarch rule and people are happy there but in india democracy is there
    and people are not happy here . Democracy leads to corruption and corruption leads to pooverty. No maters if a country is ruled by one people or a group of people .Even one person is enough to rule a country if it is good.And if leaders are not good a group of people also cant rule the country..

  • It could be better

    I think that of the current options it might be the best, but I think democracy has its issues as well. For example, you get other people deciding who is eligible to participate. That is wrong. In the past groups were not allowed to decide because of they were poor or belonged to a race. Its majority rule practice I dislike as well. The majority can dictate how I am supposed to live my life even if they don't participate in what they are dictating about.

  • It is lie

    Because it is a lie. There is no true democracy right now. Majority only decides on candidates for a political office from given list and then the politicians decide instead of rest of population. So the politicians hide behind that lie and almost never go too prison for doing bad things because they have political immunity. So it isn't real democracy it is dream that will never come true.

  • No right to vote.

    In India the right to vote is given to everyone whether rich or poor. The poor or illiterate people do not know whom they should give their valuable vote to, so they give the vote to their caste person and if the person is bad it is an injustice to the good candidate. The democracy states the right to vote, and in this case don't you think it is partial?

  • No, not if it means simply majority rule.

    No, pure democracy is not, because democracy is simply the rule of the majority. The best form of government is one that protects all people. Without restraints on power, a simple majority vote can become as dangerous to an unpopular minority as the rule of a single autocrat. That is why America is not a simple democracy; that is the reason for the Constitution, for the separation of powers, for the Electoral College, and for the differences between the House of Representatives and the Senate. We have a democratically elected representative government, which almost certainly serves us better than any other form. But the difference between our government and a tyrannical one is not that ours is democratic, but that it is understood that even the government is not above the law, and that certain rights and principles are held inviolable.

  • Selfish and depending upon majority

    Democracy is depending upon majority. They doesn't think what is good for the citizens. For eg: if majority is that, there should be no morality in school then it is taken away from school. This is not good. Democracy acts from the selfish whims of the depraved man. Since man is depraved only junk comes out from democracy.

  • They don't care about are views

    Once we vote a guy into Congress they don't care about any opinion but there own most of the time. They will maybe ask us about less important things. Government does secret operations with out are knowing. So democracy is not perfect and easily sustained. If it was a democracy we would be able to tell the government not to start secret operations with out gaining are permission. Facilities like area 51 that they didn't tell us was real until recently. Democracy is the same as any government all of the power is held I'm government. Yeah we can impeach the president or a Republican or Democratic. Then the next guy comes along and takes power. There is people who select candidates that are allowed to run for President which it should be any ones freedom to run for President. Democracy is not as free as you think.

  • People do not know what is best for them

    People just keep making strikes and rallies without any reason. They do not know what they want. People just look for what is best for themselves, not for the country. It would be better if some other superior person can decide.
    And also if some law or decision has to be taken, it takes a long time because it has to pass through all the councils. This will take a long time and by the time it is approved it may be forgotten by the people itself.

  • No, it's oppression of the minority at the benefit of the majority

    Depends on what you define as best form? Supportive of human rights? Nope look at third world democracies, which make the majority of democracies, they oppress minorities, educated, and rich to appease and gain support of the poor to further their agenda. Allows the most freedoms? In a sense yes. But the best form of government is actually a theoretical form of government, called Panarchy in which government is like a product you can pick and choose the one you wish to join. The reason why Democracy is popular although is because it is the primary carrier of socialism, all democracies eventually become socialist. Socialism in response suppresses the minority to the benefit of the majority, which they go hand and hand.

Wengerocracy is the best form of government. Knowing if there is law is better than picking someone who says there is law.

I am of two minds. I think that democracy is good, but the democrats can be very pushy and upset with the government. Why should those of us that save our money have to pay for other people not saving their money and wanting more for 10 dollar lattes?

Pay attention or taxes. When you go into that election booth to vote and see two candidates remember to watch the one who wins. Democracy is a great idea but wengerocracy is the greatest idea in politics. Knowing what every single leader of every single country did while ruling is a better form of government than democracy.
