Do people deserve democracy?

3 years, 9 months ago

After what was called "the Jasmin revolution" in my country, people are now calling for freedom and democracy even if it is on the extent of justice, equity and common interest. In the name of freedom people are free whatever they want! It has become complete chaos. For instance, people would riot and scream and yell but about something they consider unfair and they don’t think about solutions and impose their wants and desires on the responsibles. People want freedom and don’t take responsibilities, they want justice but they don’t stick to the law… and they are the majority! the crashing majority! I think they don’t deserve democracy!

democracy can only exist by the grace of compromise….. personal agenda’s are killing for democracy. WHat is happening in new democracy’s is the formation of institutions representing those individuals, in old democracy people are fighting against laws and regulation born before the people were… that is hardly democratic either….

democracy is a mediocre solution and can by its nature never be more then that.

People deserve some opportunity.. and democracy is one way of getting it. Monarchies are way better…

@kidvisions, I aggree. Its like Plato said (paraphrase), a democracy will inevitably become an oligarchy, due to the manipulation of the mob. This process will fluctuate over time. Its actually an ingenuous way to ensure the aristocracy remain in control.
