  • 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

    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.

    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.

  • i think democracy is nice

    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.

  • Represents the people

    The biggest virtue of Democracy is that it is government by the people for the people. The government represents the views of the people who elect them and can throw them out if the government does things that the people do not like. Unlike other forms of government democracy is about the little man, everyone rather than the elite that are often disconnected from how everyone else lives their lives.

  • Yes it is

    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 and equal say by voting for different properties of the nation/state in which they live. No other form of government has been proven better and its gives freedom to the people but with boundaries. So therefore, democracy is the best form of government!

  • Support people rights

    In a democratic country a person is respective. In a democratic country like India, our govt. has provided fundamental rights. But in a non-democratic country no basic rules are provided. We can move freely in our country or a person can express his or her opinion. We can change our govt when it doesn't work.

  • Support people's rights

    In a democratic country a person is respective. In a democratic country like India, our govt. Has provided fundamental rights. But in a non-democratic country no basic rules are provided. We can move freely in our country or a person can express his or her opinion. We can change our govt when it doesn't work.

  • Yes it is

    Democracy is the best form of government because it is for the people by the people with the people.
    In this form of government people elect their own representatives through voting or elections. In this government if people are not happy with the government they can remove it from power by not voting them in the next elections.

  • 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.

  • H e y

    I don't mind. This is the thing. Democracy is bad because once the people in parliament decided then no need tone anxious about who wins.
    That concludes
    That democracy is very debatable but it can be good or bad in many different ways that is why I choose democracy is not the best form of government.
    This is my opinion don't attack me for this please.
    Thanks You

  • The Elite and Highly Qualified Should Rule

    It is obvious that democracy has consistently led to poverty, Corruption, And division throughout history. This is because voters do not understand the purpose of government, Do not understand their national history, And are extremely inept and incompetent. These same people are the ones tasked with choosing their leaders; naturally, They choose those most like themselves. In this way, The most incompetent are catapulted to positions in power where they blunder around and cause suffering. Democracy is inherently divisive and only accentuates inequalities.

    Instead of consciously selecting the least competent and the most corrupt people, Our leaders should be highly qualified. Aptitude tests should be used to select possible future candidates for government positions at an early age. These candidates should then go on to special academies where they will be trained for a future life of government service. This will minimize corruption and reckless policies.

  • A Republic is the Best Form of Government

    A republic is the best form of government because it doesn't allow the majority to have complete control. In a democracy the majority can vote to harm the minorities or do un-informed actions. It also doesn't make the voter have to inform himself on every topic. This allows the voter to give the responsibility to someone whose only job is to be educated about these topics. Overall a republic is superior because it puts checks and balances on the majority.
    Republic: a country that is governed by elected representatives and an elected leader
    Democracy: the citizens as a whole form a governing body and vote directly on each issue

  • What about Gandhi

    If the dictator is good and benevolent then dictatorships are better. WHAT IF YOUR DICTATOR WAS GANDHI! ? ! ? ! ? ! IT woudl be AWESOME! Think about it. . . What if I was your dictator. Im cool, Sexy, And soft so i would be a lit dictator and yuo would never complain. You northerners need to listen to me.

  • A Republic if you can keep it. Ben Franklin

    Democracy is majority rule and does not protect the rights of the minority. We have a Federal form of government. Look it up to know what it is. (Federalism) We have a Constitution and the rule of law. Many of those voting for Democracy have arguments that only fit a Republican form of government.

  • Increasingly About Money

    In some countries democracy seems to be increasingly about money. The U. S. Is the obvious example where millions are spent on elections with big events and glitzy advertising campaigns. This is not what democracy should be about and it discourages other countries from moving along the path to democracy. Indeed it undermines the very idea of democracy. Democracy when money is involved to the extent that it is in the U. S. A. Becomes elitist and corporatist because only the elite and rich businessmen can afford to fund the campaigns for congress let alone for the presidency. The 2008 campaign for the White House cost $1. 6 billion and the whole 2008 election including senate and house of representatives races cost $5. 3 billion. Autocracies obviously avoid this immense expense by avoiding elections.

  • Everyone isn't happy

    Democracy leads to no scope for morality because people are corrupt. Calling the Prime Minister "CHOWKIDAR" and " CHAIWALA" is not something our morals are about. There Is also a lot of fixing like tampering with the EVM happening during elections. Thus, Democracy should not be there because you cannot always keep everyone happy.

  • Democracy is bad

    Democracy as a form of governance is not the best form of governance because democracy doesn't work. . . . In a democracy the majority rules over the minority, Even if by one vote. There are no countries in the world that grant the right to vote to its citizens; the right to vote is granted to the electorate.

  • Democracy is for idiots

    Democracy can never work. Why? Because no government ever really can. However, One might say that democracy is the least of all the evils of government. The truth is that its not. Corrupting a democratic state is easy. Just look at Michigan. The new governor can't do shit because of the laws passed by the previous governor. All that needs to happen to corrupt it is to fill it up with corrupted people. In fact, That has already happened in the United States. All your stupid ass reps are getting paid off by companies who want them to advertise, Protect, And sell their shit. So no democracy cannot work it is flawed like every other government. In fact, Our current democracy is more like a plutocracy because all of the people in office are rich af. So, It will never work. What do you propose is the solution you might ask? Simple, Look at Singapore. They manage to get shit done and their government works like a well oiled machine. One might disagree and say, Doesn't tyranny come easily to a state ruled by one executive? While it proves true you have to consider how difficult it would be to have that happen in a meritocracy. People are elected based on merit. So obviously to achieve such a feat you would need to fake your life to get to office in order to turn the government sour. And if we are being honest, That would be so fucking hard (no pun intended). So is democracy the best? No. No it is not.

  • A Tyranny of the Majority

    Voting is an act of violence, A selection of who shall oppress the majority. People do not require coercive political leaders, And as long as they believe that they do, The world will be quite an unfortunate place. If people are too dangerous to govern themselves, Then who are they to select who should govern others, Too?

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!!!
