What are the best political qualities of today's societies?
Individual rights and freedom.
Clean streets. Freedom and justice that are better than ever before. Plenty of fast food.
The fact that the common man has some say in how things are run via democratic institutions is the best political quality of modern democratic societies. I know the common man's say is limited by all the big money that influences modern poltics, but when compared to the dictatorships of past generations, including kingdoms of past centuries, democracy still provides everyone in society at least a small voice in what their government does. Whereas, in the past the common man did as he/she was told and had no say or they faced repression, injury, or death (which is still the case in many countries around the world). If there is overwhelming support for or against some government policy in democratic societies, it can still be changed via the democratic process.
I'm still thinking.....nope, can't think of any.
Maybe I'll think of something after next years elections.
