To McGrath's points, I concur to a great degree. I have quoted Washington on this board: "Government is not reason it is not eloquence it is force". The question is one of degrees. Democracies are manifestly more tolerant of differing opinion and are less imperialistic.

Your example of the Nazi is half complete. While he was initially elected, I don't think that you could consider Germany a democracy afterwards.
