Democracy can fail

posted in: Democracy | 0

Democracy is not a perfect method to create Governments, but when it is done right, it can prevent bad Governments from surviving.

But as a human right, as a way to run things, democracy has a fatal flaw. Despite its raw power of being able to topple a government or president overnight, it is not very efficient at making good decisions. The worst are those made by the masses, ones that matter, ones that affect multiple generations.

Important decisions are not always best left to democratic decision making, often though, it ends up being the fairest and most appropriate way to settle differences. As a body count it achieves its highest purpose; but, as an influential and collective mind, it is a poison that guarantees madness.

Democratic decisions apportion profitability or cost of land or other assets, but they do not partake in expanding capital or creating new markets, the needs of the individual include hunger and an awareness that conditions change. Democracies are driven by common values, common ground or just plain advantage. Theirs is the blunter instrument. We elect these people and they collect the votes from the opinions they spout

The needs of the few cannot dictate the experience of the many. But that is not what happens.
