Would a one-party state be more democratic?

Posted by: NestorTheZizek

When I say one-party state I really mean a no-party state, or a more unitary body, in which there's no political parties, simply a parliament or governmental body who are elected by the people to make decisions without the divisive party politics

  • Yes

  • No

17% 2 votes
83% 10 votes
  • A pile of crap is manure by any other name, And doth smell just as bad no matter what you call it.

  • Limiting control of power to one political party is not a democracy; it called socialism. Communism. "Not right." Let's look beyond the current two-party system for answers (ie: Libertarian party, Green party). How about making sure that they are on the ballot in all 50 states? That's a start. Then, put them in the debates. Better. Let's vote them into office rather than cling to the same old ----?

  • With only one party to choose from in a government, individual representation is vastly limited. You could argue for a unitary state, but to say it's more democratic seems outright wrong.

It would, because non-partisan politics would means decisions could be focused on and national unity, rather than divisive partisan politics. If we were instead voting for decisions rather than the people in power we could achieve a lot more. Just look at China, one of the fastest growing economies in the world has a one-party state which improves on human rights issues everyday

Northern China is about to become the next great dust bowel if they don't kill everybody in Bejing first with smog.
