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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
