  • 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.

    3. It provides a dignity to the people.
    4. It helps in realising one's mistakes and improving upon them.
    5. There is no other form of government or an lternative better than a democracy.

  • 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.

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

  • Yes it is

    The very clichéd definition of a democracy- it is of the people for the people and by the people. This means that it functions not only for the people but also for their benefits as the people are the rulers and they can understand each others necessities. Also in the other forms of government whether it be anarchy or monarchy, people are coerced with laws and rules they may not want to follow but just have to bare with it which created anger and disharmony for instance in the case of Syria rebellion. There is also no constitution which guarantees the people certain human rights and they cannot even use it as a living document. Thus it is somewhat not a good form of government. However in democracy one can voice out their own opinions and views as it guarantees freedom of speech, action an the list goes on . Thus democracy is the best form of government

  • 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.

  • Democracy is the counting of heads, not what’s in them!

    Democracy is not freedom. Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to eat for lunch. Freedom comes from the recognition of certain rights which may not be taken, not even by a 99% vote.
    — Marvin Simkin

    “We are a Republican Government. Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy… It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.”
    ~ Alexander Hamilton

    “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”
    ~ John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

    “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.
    ~ James Madison, 4th President of the United States, Father of the Constitution
    “The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived.”
    ~ John Quincy Adams, 6th President of the United States

    “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”
    ~ John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 1801-1835

  • The majority is in wrong side

    I think that monarchy and dictatorship and democracy would have no meaning when the monarch,the dictator,and the choosen one government's leader will think of the well being of the country.I think that democracy of india is not correct,well i know that i am able to say this things because we have democratic government but i think that we could have a better one

  • It cause to separation of society

    Two sides of society fighting against each other because of the democracy voting. Meanwhile the leader chillin counting his money. Just because democracy is not the best doesn't mean that communism is the best. But we can have something better than democracy. Democracy create hates in peoples' hearts and this is not the true definition of a nation which society hate each other just because of this political issue

  • Democracy sucks, Americans jealous.

    Democracy wastes time, and slowed down economic growth. Citizens do not know what is best for themselves and what is best for the economy. Citizens don't realize all the points of a election. It's best if people who know who they are voting for vote for the citizens. Thus countries that are growing rapidly are not democracy.

  • Nope it isnt

    No because democracy means corruption and the leaders have no other goal other than making money and just ask ur selfs when ever do the leaders do some work for u(except some). Go to india u see corruption in large scales go to other places and see corruption is there. While in a monarchy there is one ruler and he will remain the ruler and in power until he wants to so he has no greed and becomes a good ruler. While in a democracy its the opposite

  • Nooooooo it is wrong

    In direct democracies, where the people rule, they often make mistakes in their desicisons, because of fleeting passions and not having full knowledge which has severe consequences for everyone. There was strong sentiment directly after 9/11 that America should use nuclear weapons against Arab nations that were suspected of being involved in the attacks. If America was a direct democracy, we would long have been dead by now, as momentary passions would have led to worldwide nuclear war.

    In representative democracies, corruption is rampant, where politicians vie for votes and money to get votes. This is a problem because it means that the people who are supposed to represent us don't really have our best interests at heart, which basically defeats the purpose of the democracy existing.

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.
