Why do people want democracy when its doesn't work?
democracy is a political system of lies. it encourages people to live in a little fantasy world of their own choosing. unlike a dictatorship which forces you to live in a fantasy world of someone else's choosing.
obviously the best system of government is to have an enlightened dictator. of course you wouldn't be happy because you would be forced to face reality. but eventually people would evolve to accept reality. and isn't that better in the long run?
i like anarchy, but no one has made it work yet...
yea, i heard that tibet had slavery until the chinese took over. part of me wonders if that is just chinese propaganda to justify taking the country, but there is no way to know. its doesn't really take away from the idea though. we had slavery in the united states. the greeks had slavery too. you wouldn't dismiss democracy just because we had slavery at one time.
the athenians had direct democracy and had they the same problems that we do. it wouldn't help the situation.
have you heard of bhutan? we judge a country by economic standards (GPD), but they judge the value of their country by how happy the people are. so in our eyes they are poor, but in their eyes they are rich.
all you guys talking about direct democracy, look up socrates. he tried to keep athens from ruining itself and they didn't listen. so after they lost their power they blamed him and then they killed him! direct democracy is horrible!
you ask for facts but you provide none. you misunderstand, and they talk about being clever. you don't even do the most basic of research, and yet you pretend to know what you are talking about.
and actually, i just thought of something which ruins my whole theory. fidel castro is the enlightened dictator. all cubans have health care and high degree of education. no one starves.
but in order to maintain his system he has to control the economy so much that there is no prosperity. he also has to control information so much that there is no freedom. and even though people are are better off than before castro, they would rather live in the united states (overall, not everyone).
of course there is the embargo. so its possible that it would succeed economically if the embargo was lifted. but the failure of the soviet union make me think otherwise.
