  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    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.

  • 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.

  • Minarcharic or Libertarian democracy is best.

    Logically, a democracy denies the core necessity of a government. If people are too dangerous to be allowed no government, then why would you ask those same people to elect leaders? And then allow those leaders the ability to use other people, with a far more powerful monopoly of force, to stop the dangerous actions of those same people. It's equivalent to having prisoners elect a warden. Secondly, if democracy is used in absolutism, then its no better than mob rule. The only way to elevate this is by some form of Constitutionalism, but all that works for is when people have blind faith in this document and when they don't you go back to mob rule. Various versions of democracy also don't work out because inevitably you have an oligarchy of the powerful or rich like in Republics today. US politics are dominated by the rich and all they do is increase their own power and riches to make decisions.

    A better solution to "democracy" is to have a system of force that has only the ability to use its monopoly to prevent basic crimes in small communities and protect the individuals of that system to have the maximum liberty possible. This is best by the advancement of civil institutions; people would be far more involved with this government because this is there communities at work. So a small-timed democracy with no monopoly of power or force in a small community is the only form of democracy that is acceptable.

  • 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

  • Dictatorship is the best

    Dictatorship is the best. It puts people under one leader, which seems to work out. Yes, a dictatorship may not be the most civil way to rule a nation, but it is the most unified what to rule a nation. People are all unified under one leader, and being unified is all that matters.

  • No it not that good.

    First all there is no government is good, because it leads to people be oppressed. So anarchy should rule. As anarchy is total freedom, true anarchy I'd no rulers, there are laws made by people who all agreeon the laws. The individual shouldh ave the right do else he please, has long as he hurt no one has in the process.

  • 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.

  • 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..

  • 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.

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.

The future of intelligence is civilocity, a neologism defined as a form of government where we get to watch the leader of our country for the entire time anybody ever leads our country. Imagine that intelligence community. Power to the people!!!
