Thread Name: BS: The best type of government
Subject: RE: BS: The best type of government
Thank you DMcG.
I started this because I've always taken it for granted that democracy was the system that everyone aspired to.

However that is obviously a very naive assumption for a number of reasons.

Firstly democracy frequently doesn't work very well, especially when the electorate isn't well informed and hasn't got easy access to sufficient unbiased information to change that situation.

Secondly, there are many countries around the world that are not democratic which seem to be get on very well. Have they got a better system or is there a latent desire for change amongst the population which cannot find expression?

I don't have any answers but was interested in people's views as to which sytem they thought was best.
