  • Democracy is the best form of government because

    1. Democracy represents the views and notions of all the citizens of the country, whether majorities or minorities.
    2. It helps in solving conflicts and quarrels in a better way.
    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Freedom for people

    Democracy allows various people to rule the country through the representatives . It allows people to express themselves clearly and freely. People and media criticize the ruling party without any censorship unlike autocracy where there is a limit on people's power of speech. People have the right to protest,celebrate and freely express themselves .

  • It's the Best

    I am currently doing a debate on this topic, and I do agree with this question because a democratic government represents the people. It gives the people an equal say by voting for different properties of the nation/state in which they live. No other form of government has been proven better.

  • Democracy represents all

    Well, we all know the best form of government where every group gets it equal representation and equal chance of winning is democracy. Every citizen has the right to vote on their own. It gives complete freedom of expressing one's feeling on who would they want to be governed by.

  • In the end nobody wants to be enslaved.

    In the end everyone wants to have control over their own life. As long as people aren't robots, they will crave democracy and freedom, as they should. It is also true the Democracies tend to do better because some of the people in it will seek to advance themselves and that will lead to innovation and growth. You don't get the same effect with other countries where thinking for yourself is sometimes punishable by death.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • No. Who said it is?

    In my opinion, a democracy can not work properly when the people are not competent or informed enough. Because a democracy gives the people power, people must be informed on political news and understand political concepts but a lot of people do not or they simply do not care. So, democracy is not the best form of government. But if you wanted to argue that it is, I guess you could say that because in a democracy the people have the power, the people get to decide on decisions that affect them. This is good for obvious reasons. In a democracy, everyone is entitled to free and public education. This, again, is good for many obvious reasons. A democracy also allows the people to have a broad common political interest, or political part, to share these interests and elect candidates to run for office. With a favorable economy, strong civil society, and most importantly, in my opinion, an active citizen participation, a democracy can be a great form of government.

  • Lack of information and greed of the common man.

    Democracy gives power to those who understand little of the current socio-economic state of the country, and what must be done to solve issues that arise within the nation. Economists which have studied economy-related subjects for years, and who understand these issues well, can struggle to find ways to fix economic issues within the country. Take the current economic position of the United Kingdom, and us losing our AAA credit rating to a second credit rating agency. The average citizen would have even less knowledge on how to fix these issues, and while Western Democracies do not work on the basis of pure Democracy, favouring Representative Democracy, the people still do not understand what is going on, or how to fix the current issues, and so will not know which party is best to vote in. I think matters should be left to people who understand them, and not who the people think would understand them best. People don't usually support what is best for the country, but what is best for themselves, and so I think knowledgeable people who do not think of personal gain but the benefits of the community as a whole should rule, much akin to Plato's Philosopher Kings. The people hardly understand what is going on, and who is most trustworthy as modern politics is rife with corruptions and lies. Democracys usually are rife with corruption. If the people do find out their power, they could instigate a Tyranny of the Majority, and for example vote money out of the treasury for their personal gain, and collapse the country. History has shown that the people are gaining more and more power, and eventually they will have too much and there will be no way to keep Democracy and Order.

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?
