“Many forms of Government have been tried and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” So said Winston Churchill in 1947.

The modern world is complicated, even more so than it was immediately after the Second World War when Churchill made his proclamation about the benefits of democracy. It’s seems quite likely that nobody really understands how the various parts – social, cultural, technological, economic, military, political – all interact and influence one another. Is democracy (or, at least, the democracy we currently have) up to the task?

Elections can be swayed by money and lobbying, institutions can be captured by elites, minorities can be oppressed by majorities. Two wolves and a sheep voting for dinner may be a democracy, but it’s no fun to be the sheep.

Are there alternative forms of government yet to be tested? New forms of democracy? Or completely different ways of organising society, perhaps using the internet or related technologies? Or is such utopian dreaming dangerous? There must be a reason, after all, why democracy has been such an enduring system (albeit one that has mutated many times over the years).

Is democracy the best form of government? Or just the least-worst? Let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below and we’ll take them to policymakers and experts for their reactions!

What do YOU think?

  1. Ivan Burrows


    It is certainly better than the ‘rule by the unelected elite few’ system favoured by the EU.

    • Ivan Burrows

      Leonardo Monteiro

      The UK government is elected by the British people, did you vote for your president Juncker ?

    • Pedro Castro

      Ivan Burrows representative democracy, we voted for mp’s and mp’s chose their leader.

      Did you vote for lords? Or Queen? Or any that voted for those bodies?

    • Ivan Burrows

      Pedro Castro .

      The Queen & the house of lords do not make our laws, the ‘elected’ government does and the leader of the government is also ‘elected’.

      Only your unelected European commission can make your laws, not the European Council & not the MEP’s.

      It never ceases to amaze me how little you pro EU fanatics know about the institutions that rule you.

    • David Isaksson

      Well the representatives to the commission is choosen by the national goverments which is choosen by the people. And the commission can propose the laws, not make them. Also the head of the commission is elected by the parlament and proposed by the european council which also consists of the heads of state. Hard to see what you mean by the unelected European commission.

    • Ivan Burrows

      David Isaksson

      ‘chosen’ is NOT elected, a president of a junta is ‘chosen’, the president of a democracy is elected. Which part of this simple fact is unclear ?

      From the mandate of the ‘unelected’ European Commission.

      – The Commission is the ‘sole EU institution’ tabling laws for adoption by the Parliament and the Council crated in line with the Lisbon Treaty (the rejected European constitution re-named to bypass the democratic decision of the French people in 2005)

      -Together with the (unelected) Court of Justice, ensures that EU law (created by the unelected European Commission ) is properly applied in all the member countries.

      You seem to have a very screwed interpretation of ‘democracy’.

    • Bogdan

      The Commission is similar to any Government in a democracy: based on the majority in the European Parliament (directly elected by the citizens of the EU member states), the European Council (comprised by the elected head of states or prime ministers of the EU member states) proposes a President of the Commission. The President then goes on and proposes a number of Commissioners, who are then, as a group, voted by the Parliament of the EU. The Parliament also has the right to put a motion to have the Commission removed altogether, should they deem it necessary. I don’t know how you fail to see the democratic process in this system.

    • Marian Rodu

      They were at least chose be elected people and chosen by “god” or somebody bestowed with divine rights to rule lol

    • Ivan Burrows

      Marian Rodu

      Given the mess the EU is in you may have been better off letting god chose your leader, it couldn’t be any worse.

  2. Doru Beldiman

    Good question! The democracy in Romania is a fake democracy, despite what the politicians want to display. Every party which had power (democratically elected, or not) was/is corrupt and the corruption is so well implemented. So, if all the parties are corrupted, the democracy is not working.

    • Bogdan

      No, it’s not. Because the people are stupid and vote for the corrupted politicians doesn’t mean that the democracy is fake in any way, it only means that the people are stupid and don’t understand the power of the voting process.

    • Simeon Milanov

      Democracy is corrupt itself, my dear neighbor. You cant satisfy the never ending wishes of the child-minded masses plus politicians are shortsighted and can think only for the next 4 years. Utopia always ends badly.

    • Zsolt Barczy

      Plenty. See history books for reference.

    • Răzvan Grigore

      You mean communism or nazism or absolute monarchy?

    • Zsolt Barczy

      To obtain the full list of all kinds of forms of government, you need to read further.

    • Zsolt Barczy

      Why should I give an example?

    • Zsolt Barczy

      By the way, seeing the mental level on social media, here is a hint: check out what the most civilized nations use today, and learn from that. Simple as that. Civilization needs time, and one cannot jump queues in time. So, check the oldest civilizations and you see what works. Peace

    • Fanis Kastam

      Răzvan Grigore Constitutional monarchy, Aristocracy, oligarchy, Theocracy, Anarchy, dictatorship,despotism, stratocracy,feudalism,meritocracy, tyranny. To name a few.

  3. José Bessa da Silva

    Is this even a question? And than you wonder why the EU as fallen into disgrace…I just wish my country gets out as fast as possible. You are destroying our Carnation Revolution…

  4. Νίκος Γιαννίρης

    Half of Europe has democracy and the other half has Queens and Kings!!!!hehehehe Queens and Kings in 2017!!!!!!!!!!The joke is that countries with Kings and Queens “demand”from other countries more…democratic reforms!!!!!!!!!!!Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    • Steffan Chrestensen

      Robert Grüner DK :( All born equal what a scamme. Our Sh¤%y roal familie is born with a Goldne spoon up their arse.

  5. Yordan Vasilev

    The democracy is the best form of the managing of the government.It gives possibility for the civil control of the rulling and to organized the society itself. The democracy of the EU needs of more democracy.

  6. Lucy Prelevic-Popova

    What does the term “democracy” mean? Power of the people. This doesn’t exist. That’s the ruch minority that rules the society

  7. Gabor Pocza

    Yes it is, but this doesn’t exist unfortunately of this world! Only hypocriticism will be named of democracy.

  8. Marco Bianchi

    First of all, there is not a univocal definition of democracy.
    Secondly, when in the West we talk about “democracy” we are actually talking about what is technically called liberal-democracy which is not the simple right to vote, rather, it is something much more complex.
    When media and politicians tell you that they have “exported democracy” they are lying. If you look carefully to the constitution of the countries that have been “liberated” they have nothing to do with a liberal-democracy. If a European country adopts such a constitution, we would be talking about the death of democracy and freedom! Hence, how can that same constitution be called “democratic” just because it is used in a non-Western country?
    Finally, it is clear that in order to have a true democracy (liberal-democracy) you need to have a wide-spread democratic culture. If this is lacking, you can write the best constitution in the world that democracy will not work!

    • Stefania Portici

      la democrazia diretta….diretta da chi ? Non mi convince

  9. cyril

    Your questions are always turn in the wrong way.
    “Is democracy the best form of government?”
    It would spend dozen hours of debate between political scientists to define properly first what is democracy, and another dozen hours to define the form of government (and all we never though about). The way we perform our democracy is very different from one country to another. And always, that depends on what we want to avoid regarding the history of the country.

    Do you want an inspired-consequentialist society? In other words, do you want a society where the purpose is the best median level of well-being? Or do you want something else?
    In reality, I haven’t a clue of what are the common ideas we want for our society. But what it is sure is our modern society seems to follow a process of individual accumulations of capital (knowledge, know-how, money, financial assets, capacity of production, etc.) coupled by some commune structures with the same purpose (companies) ; normal there are built and control by humans. The process seems to be more in phase with our deep needs: security and acknowledgment by maintaining our capabilities. So the democracy seems to be the best form of government for this. But the way we’re performing it hurt a non negligible part the humans and our environment on Earth.

    In fact, the democracy allows a kind of potential (illusion?) for everyone to get some influence on the structure and the rules of the society. In a democracy, as our status is equal regarding the law, the distinction of capabilities is based on what we can do, either through the representatives system or the money. It allows the release of frustration and balance at the marginal scale some injustices without destructuring the political system. The system goes along with the moral discours of self-responsability: “you have the liberty and the same chances as everyone, so you’re responsible of your success or not”. Thus, it provides quite good stability as well as allowing the accumulation of wealth.
    The true question in a democracy form of government is the way we delegate the State’s power in the representative system, and for now it is very well structure (so few places for innovation and new agent), and the tax system, that for now redistributes the total revenue of a nation for the profit of higher classes. Rich people never never induce the growth of capabilities in a society, it is the opposite, and higher classes benefit the public investment more than another without paying a balanced cost regarding this benefit. When they get more capabilities for themself, it is to the detriment of poorer people.

    So, which form of democracy is the best form? That a better question at the end.

    • Simeon Milanov

      Aristocracy/Enlgihtened monarchy = stability, hierarchy, long term goals, national unity, pragmatism instead of the never ending plebeian demands for ”justice” and ”equality”, smaller corruption than in democracy. Sadly the masses and their puppet masters will never allow for anyone to strip them out of their sick utopia for equality, redistribution and unaccountability.

    • Cyril.F

      Were not the structure of the real socialism of Staline and the Reich of Hitler? It is the same as a dictature in our current language. Nothing more, nothing less. It is a discrimination of people regarding their affiliation, absolutely not regarding the general will or to maximize the well-being of a Nation.
      And of course, in this system there is no corruption because there is no rules regarding how someone can influence those who hold the power.

    • Hadrien Davidson

      Le niveau de naïveté par ici. Ça fait peur.

  10. Vytautas Vėžys

    Good dictatorship is better than bad democracy…
    P.S. What we call “democracy” is not even close how “democracy” should work…

    • Cyril.F

      What is a “good dictatorship”?

  11. Dutoiu Catalin

    Democracy is never exist, only jungle law, democracy is just in heaven, not on this planet …

  12. Dimitris Orfanoudis

    Democracy has its disavantages however there are other political systems which are worst than the democratic system

  13. catherine benning

    Is democracy the best form of government?

    carried out, Direct Democracy, Swiss Style, is the only true Democracy. The rest are mainly fixed, one way or another.

    In the Western world only Direct Democracy is the solution to voting reality. And that is the best form of government there is.

  14. Stefania Portici

    si, la democrazia è la miglior forma di governo . La diversità dei partiti politici fanno la democrazia ( no al partito unico, si ai partiti ). la militanza nella politica è da preferire all’attivismo ( militanti politici si, attivisti no e si….no ) Yes, democracy is the best form of government. The diversity of political parties makes democracy (not the single party, the party itself). Militancy in politics is preferable to activism (political militants are, activists no and yes …. no)

  15. Simeon Milanov

    Unfortunately not. Democratic politicians tend to be shortsighted (4 years mandate) and since the state is PUBLIC property and they cant really benefit from it in a legit way, they like to take bribes, steal and so on. For example in the ancient regime (absolute monarchy), the ruler views the state as his private property and as we know people care more about their private property than public one (and they want to leave their children a better legacy). Also, decision taking in democracies during crisis is slow and ineffective. And the elected officials are almost always ideologically biased instead of pragmatic. Let us not forget also, that most people don’t have the time, education, willingness and skills to participate in the democratic process, which in turn leads to the widespread phenomena of low voting turnout, as well as manipulations, lies, populism (which is not exclusively reserved to far-right or far-left, but also to center-right and center-left politicians). As a matter of fact, if we examine modern and early modern history, we will see that democratic states are in almost constant chaos – protests, weak governments due to lack of parliamentary majority, foreign power influence (because democratic politicians like taking bribes as I said, and every strong secret service can finance a new party in a neighboring state for example) and so on. Democratic politicians DO NOT THINK OF THE FUTURE, instead they focus on what happens NOW and what would get them ELECTED. Because of this they also tend to spend public money without restraint, only to satisfy the electorate. Debts? Why not, it doesn’t matter our children will pay them, what interests them is sthat with spending they will satisfy the mob and get elected. National security? Bah, they don’t care about that, unless it doesn’t help them grow their prerogatives and powers to control every aspect of citizens lives. On the other hand, if we take my example with the absolute king. Well he will not take debts without control, because HIS OWN son will have to pay them. If he has a brain between his ears, he will not succumb to the ever increasing demands of the majority of people and instead focus on what realistically should be done. And because of this, he will not raise taxes as democratic politicians like to do, because rulers want long term benefits for their families, instead of short term. The problem with this form of government is that (be it absolute monarchs, dictators, strong presidents in presidential republics) if a weak heir comes to rule the country, things go bad, whereas in democracies you can at least on paper change the government. Still, if I have to rate modern liberal democracy from 1 to 10 (10 being super and 1 very bad/terrible) I would rate it 3/10.

    • Παυλος Χαραλαμπους

      The same can be said about a dictatorship.there are plenty of historical examples about that see Franco regime in spain and the ” April’s junta ” in Greece in booth cases the government tried to win the public with various ” benefits ” for their supporters and both totally failed in real crisis ( exp.Cyprus 1974).. Any form of government needs a minimum of public support to function properly,so if they aren’t capable enough or the public is submitted to opposition propaganda they going to do the same thing regardless if they are elected or not
      So the real issue is are we really responsible enough? Democratic system need the maximum of responsibility from the voters to be successful
      But at least if the voters are mistaken they can always try something different. .

    • Παυλος Χαραλαμπους

      Ps .a king won’t spent to much because he owns the country. ……… You probably have no idea how much the Greek tax payers payed for Sophia marriage with Juan Carlos ( the now king of Spain) …
      Something close to 7% of the total national GDP of Greece that wear. .just think about it a country with dirt roads and tin houses in the capital city. With a ravaged country side from war with out running water or electricity( we are talking about the 60s!!) pays some billions so their little princess can have a ” fairy tale. ” marriage. ..

  16. Simeon Milanov

    Consider this. The most influential states in geopolitics and international relations are not democratic Germany or democratic France, but USA, Russia, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and so on. The U.S. is a strong presidential republic, Russia is an authoritarian presidential republic, China is a single-party state, Iran is an authoritarian country with theocratic elements, Turkey is a dictatorship (and in the near future possibly a sultanate), Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy. Virtually none of the states that shape the destiny of the world is a liberal democracy of European type. Lets be frank, nobody in Africa or the Middle East gives a dime about what Germany says, but when the USA, Russia or Saudi Arabia say something, they listen and examine it carefully.

    • José Bessa da Silva

      You are welcome to become one of those. Just don’t count me in. I quite apreciate my “liberal democracy” to the point of not caring if any african country listens to my capital or not (some of them actually do)…

    • Simeon Milanov

      I am sure you do. Nowadays most people prefer to listen to their emotions rather than rational and cold blooded calculations. But democracy always ends in one way. Huge welfare state, terrible debt crisis, migrant invasions and the subsequent chaos, skyrocketing crime rates, deconstruction of society, ethnic and confessional violence, mass unemployment and so on. And the worst part is that the child-minded masses, spoiled with democracy and welfare, don’t realize what happened, so they want more and more of the same poison.

    • José Bessa da Silva

      Rational and cold blooded thinking brought us a 600 year long empire under an absolute monarchy followed by a corporativist civil dictatorship. What had it brought to your country? So, rather than “cold blooded calculation” being the reason to such achievements one has to wonder that other variables may play much more important roles. You got the dictatorship as I did but no empire to suit it. Said that, my debt was made rescuing banks thanks to the useless ECB and European Union and we have no migrant invasion. My country is the 3rd most peaceful nation on earth, our unemployment is the result of “cold blooded calculation” behind the filthy undemocraticb “federalized europe” project, etc. So again, if you want to subject yourself to a dictatorship like a third worlder be my guest. Then do not feel humiliated when the UN asks my country to send electoral teams to scrutiny your election as we do in Angola, Mozambique, etc.

    • Cyril.F

      “The U.S. is a strong presidential republic”. Not at all. It is one of the most balanced republic in the world regarding its structure between the president and the congress.
      If you want a strong presidential republic, the french one is very strong.

      Regarding the geopolitics, what make a country really powerful are its resources (petrol, gas, minerals, fertile soil) and its industry (strong manufacture including military) to make them useful.

  17. Jude De Froissard

    If the people are prepared and educated for it…..yes. But in order to have real democracy. …you have to respect as the main ingredient.

  18. Enric Mestres Girbal

    No, unless the people in power were honest, inteligent and sensible to the people’s needs. At the moment, democracy is the lair of corruption.

  19. EU Reform- Proactive

    The so called democratic…. “Elections can be swayed by money and lobbying, institutions can be captured by elites, …………………….” yes it is, great that this flows from the pen of the DE= EU organ.

    Is that a realization & admittance that there are inherent EU democratic deficits translating into economical costs for many of its citizens? Is reaching for an elusive EU unitary political sky- aiming regardless to become bigger, less democratic- better?

    EU supranational, subsidiary, neoliberal + + + “democracy” has been designed to become an untouchable entrenched concept which disallows itself to be reformed by its voters or the EP.

    Isn’t it high time for the European Council and the Council of the European Union to become more flexible, approachable and install a “Commission of EU reforms”- before the voters eventually “enforce” reforms like Brexit?

    Are JCJ & Co. hardcore & compulsive gamblers- risking all or nothing?

  20. Tiromanzino May

    Is the less bad of all. As imperfect as it is, any other way of government is a white bill for totalitarianism

  21. Hugo Costa Moreira

    Not our democracy I defend a variation semi direct democracy…similar to Switzerland. How it works well I defend this, when a government wants to change the education, health, taxes, wants to make a big investment using public funds the people should be called to pronounce itself in a referendum, and that referendum should make the government respect the people…to make it representative of the people the vote should be mandatory to everyone even if you just want to leave it blank you should go only them we will have a real people’s democracy…that’s my view of the future of democracy.

  22. Luis García

    what are you thinking about? dictadure? now there is not democracy. Not while the economy is the new God goverment the politics and TV´s

  23. Dimitris Kitsanelis

    Democracy is the best form of revolution.

  24. Andrew Potts

    It depends on the environment in the country , plus maybe the culture of the people Democracy is largely a European development and its pretty arrogant to think one size fits all.

  25. Ingemar Grahn

    It’s The best one we havet att The moment

  26. Betty Syrigou

    If we talk about genuine democracy and not a charade , by all means yes. It’ s not always perfect but it’s the best we can have

  27. ironworker

    No, the “liberal democracy” is far away from from the best form of government. I suggest the movie “The Circle” to have little understanding of what the so called “direct democracy” (why not the “direct justice”?) means.

  28. Enchev

    Dear Madams & Sirs,
    Dear Friends,
    My name is Enchev, Iliya / Bulgarian

    Now’s day the entire World is focusing on our Social very right and strong activity.
    All progressive associations and communities around the World is doing great promises and hops for real Democratic changes, not only in small parts of this Earth but in all of this World.
    Peoples and all Human Beings in this World, waiting for Real Democratic changes.
    As well known, Totalitarian regimes was the Country’s Capitalism, which by Mr. Gorbachev (what’s called PERESTROIKA), has being changed to Private Capitalism.
    Now, this World living on to Private Capitalism, were the Social structure of every Countries still forgotten and neglected by the Medieval laws and CONSTITUTIONS.
    All Human being now living grouped and intentionally polarized on the tree separate, PRIVAT struggling-streams, I call them ‘Currents’;
    1. Private, Ideologically CLOSED-PARTIES, struggling Current, (were all Party’s members choosing their ideological orientation by their selves, that’s means Privately, like a amateur’s their Hobby)
    2. The second is Religious struggling-Currents, (were all prayers choosing their God’s orientation by their selves, that’s means also privately)
    3. And the third is Ethnical groups struggling Current, which is most disgracing one, where most even of the 21 Century Human Beings, still not accepting, but still struggling & confronting each other’s, on the base of their origins, RASSIALLY.

    All of these tree GROUPED struggles, Private Currents, it’s very well controlled by the Private Business & Banking sectors, pushing it to kept us confronted and group-polarized each other’s, which cause the major struggles, wars and poverties on this Earth, calling this “democracy”.

    Not a real DEMOCRACY IN THIS WORLD, nowhere!

    Yes BORN at the RIGHT TIME, because it’s the time for changes of the Social struggling grouped structure of this Earth, as well as to changing Human Beings life, to the REAL DEMOCRACY.
    This RIGHT TIME IS NOW, ours TIME TO BUILD the PEACE & Freedom!

    What is the real requirement for building the real Democratic Society?
    What is the real requirement for building the real PEACE ON THIS EARTH?
    What is the real requirement for building the real FREEDOM?
    There are a lot of requirements but tree is THE MOST IMPORTANT & major requirements, I call SOCIAL PERESTROJKA.!
    1. The CONSTITUTIONAL EQUAL RIGHTS assigned TO THE LABOR FORCES,( As a Main “motors” of every Economy), Not only to be able to CREATE and makes the Profits, but also to have the equal Rights for proportionally sharing and allocating its Profits.
    With Regrets that now’s days, in 21st Century, not one Country nor Companies has made a Constitution’s law, which assigning such rights equality & Opportunities to the labor forces.
    The 98% of the labor force had makes the profits, but only 2% have exclusivity rights for sharing and allocating this Profits. Is this a democracy?
    2. The Presumptions of INNOCENTS.
    This means that its need the Constitutional Country’s Jurisdiction rights to all honesty and innocents Peoples, not to be compulsed for legitimating their innocence & honesty by papers, treated “equally” with criminals.
    POLITICAL-IDEOLOGIS struggling grouped SECTORS,
    RELIGIOUS struggling grouped SECTORS and,
    ETHNICS struggling grouped SECTORS, MUST BE NO MORE involved NOT ANY MORE, on to the Country’s Professional-affairs.
    What’s this means?
    This means that from the beginning of this Century, we 21 CENTURY Human-beings understood that to BUILD a PEACE, FREEDOM & real DEMOCRACY, we MUST ACCEPT EACH OTHERS by STOPPING POLARIZED way of life.
    (Ideologically, Religiously, and most ashamed, Ethnic-racially).
    We understood that the time is to START CHOOSING OUR DEMOCRATIC Government’s LEADERS on the BASE OF THE INDIVIDUAL Person’s TALENTS, BETWEEN US.

    Let’s STOPS, no any more majorized Groups-struggling elections, CHOOSING leaders between not talented and without Loyalty peoples, some time with immunity shielded criminal inclinations.
    This means that constitutionally, we must ban the touches of these tree Private populy-polarizing Grouped sector; (Political-Ideology, Religious, and Ethnics), to not be touches any more on to the Countries PROFESSIONAL Social Affairs, but not to ban their organizations.
    Let’s them continuing struggling privately on the back-yards of the Country side only, practicing even organized by their old activities, but not more openly for making struggles by polarizing us.

    FOR SAVING our FUTURE, we must accept THESE TREE our differences!
    Because not every one understand this needs, we must SUPPLEMENT NEW CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS!
    Let’s start the PROFESSIONALISM IN OUR SOCIAL LIFE & Relations.

    Me and ALL BULGARIANS AS WELL AS I do believe, All Earth POPULATION, WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT, on real Democratic changing this World as well as the Future’s Earth’s life & Life of our followings new young generation, only by the ways of weakening-Up OUR politically, religiously & ethnically grouped private ENTUSIASM , SHOWING THE WAYS OF PROFESIONAL SOCIAL Relations, BY ACCEPTANCE!
    We strongly believe that we can do this SOCIAL PERESTROIKA NOW!
    * It’s the truth that, no one POLITICALY CLOZED CURENTS, has officially NO written evidence, of acceptance the others IDEOLOGIES, fact which makes us to be polarized and to struggle all the times for nothing.


    WEE NEED start choosing our leaders by NEW Mandarinat ELECTION system, testing all Governmental position for post-loyalty of the every assigned person.

    * WE NEED constitutionally bans of all trades with country’s laws, allowing only Wealthy criminals for escaping from justice, paying for their crimes, bur not for no-wealthy crimes.
    The fact which keeps crimes between us, as well as fact which makes us to be socially, & class-separated.

    * WE NEED TO START RELIGIOUS “Perestroika”, by supplementing on to the all luminous Holly books like (Bible, Koran, Jewish-Talmud & Buddhists Holly books et cet.), most desired this days role, ACCEPTANCE of the others religious. Acceptance of the Gods but with different name (God, Christos, Allah, Jehovah, Buddhists as the same.)
    It’s the truth that no one RELIGIOUSE struggling groups has officially assigned written evidence of acceptance the others religious.
    The fact, which makes us to be polarized and to struggling all the times under ONE GOD, for nothing.
    If we, Human beings need to be surviving and to kept the PEACE IN THIS WORLD, the Religious PERESTROIKA should be started by radical supplementation on to their Holly books, like a Bible, Koran, Jewish-Tora, as well Buddhism, by adding ACCEPTANCE OF ALL DIFFERENT RELIGIOUSE.
    To be saved the Peace on the Earth;
    We, Human beings, need to change fundamentally our social lives by new constitutions based on to the laws of “Tolerant-Acceptance”, strictly banning touches of these tree private ”hobbies- currents” to the professionals Government and States affairs.
    Detailed plan for this coming changes are made by Bulgarian-Japanese movement “Tolerant-Acceptance”
    With Warm Regards,

  29. Maia Alexandrova

    Democracy is the best idea, but in order to work, it must be executed cleverly and responsibly. This is why we see varying degrees of democracy around the world. I would say Switzerland has the best execution of the democratic idea so far. Some countries are only democratic in words, but not in practice. How much democracy there is in a country depends on how much a government allows people to take part in the process of making policies and laws. A well executed democracy is the best form of government.

  30. catherine benning

    Is democracy the best form of government?

    The one true Democracy is the Direct Democracy, Swiss style. And this is the best.

  31. Matthias Schmitt

    democracy is no form of government. it says only where the power comes from you wanted to say republic…..
