    Democracy

    In my opinion, democracy is just as corrupt as dictatorship.

    In fact, I think that if a dictator is actually good for the country he will be more responsible and less corrupt than democracy.

    Democracy is just a corrupt government's excuse to a "non - corrupt" government.

    Basically they just do illegal things and create laws that make them legal.

    Furthermore, they control the media and blind the general public on what's right so when it comes time to "vote" the public just votes for what the government wants them to vote for.

Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    Worth adding that the general populace is both entirely ignorant to the issues and easily corruptable themselves. Even in a pure democracy, governments would still crumble. A single person with an admirable resolve would do wonders for justice and equality.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Precisely my smart gentleman.

    No ideology is perfect. We can only dream about an utopic political system. While democracy is not perfect, it is be best one we got as of now.

    I have always believed that dictatorship will prove way more effective and fruitful than democracy. Dictatorship will provide strictness in laws and it doesn't matter if the dictator himself abuses it because the people will not due to the fear of the consequences that may befall them. That's the good thing about dictatorship, Control is stabilized.

    Democratic socialism works just fine. Just look at Nordic countries.

    The reason Nordic countries are doing so well is because of all of the services they provide for their citizens. You barely find anyone who is rich or sick, the government takes care of them.

    This system can be applied to any type of government.


    Nordic countries' success is not a result of their government type.

    Socialism is a type of government. And there is always side effects to each type of government. Socialists under normal circumstances tends to be lazier and more carefree; general tempo is also slower compared to say capitalists.

    LMFAOOO good jokes.
    Capitalism LOOOL
    If capitalism is so fucking great, explain America LOOL.
    We're 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, 13th in business starting, 47th in press freedom, 20th in international trading, 11th happiest place in the world, GDP per capita 12th in the world, 79th in industrial production growth rate, 192nd in net trades of goods and services, 4th in labor force, and 4th in exports LOL.
    We lead the world in 3 categories, number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spendings. We spend more than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies. Yet our country still isn't the safest one in the world LOL
    Look at the statistics and you'll see tons of socialist countries beating us out to the pulp LOL
    So when you say the capitalist system is faster tempo'd and harder working, I don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

    In theory that's what happens. Of course there's other variables when considering a real example.

    Something you might want to learn, statistics aren't always worth reading.

    Comparing Xth place to Xth place in whatever category is pretty stupid, especially given wide range of variables.

    :/

    Socialism needs capitalism anyway, it isn't self-sustainable at the moment.
