How can a Democracy be regarded as a final and "almost righteous" solution to human governance when it is so obviously flawed in its applications. I fail to understand that a country having 56% of it's population from faction (A) and 44% from faction (B), can accept a vote on favour of faction (A) as being tolerable to faction (B). To repeatedly claim thereafter that all installed policies are democratically sound - is nothing short of stupidity. Many countries in the world have populations deeply divided by sectarian beliefs and it is madness to expect (marginally smaller) groups to tolerate the outcome of a vote that they could never win. A solution to these conflicts could be to keep the state intact by dividing the country concerned into a North/ South situation within which preferred life practices could be enjoyed without friction. The State could still have a single united Government to manage the less contentious / mutually beneficial common policies.

Democracy leads to socialism because people vote for free stuff for themselves.  The free stuff has strings which leads to more government control.  As more government control is exerted, we begin to lose freedom.

 

Since the government does not produce added value on its own, it needs to get funding for the free stuff.  Thus, society evolves into two different groups:

  • Producers
  • Takers

And this is where the power struggle emerges.
