From extreme past up till now which political governing body will you appreciate most ? and why?
Well, much of the governments of today have been influenced by past empires. The USA is a good example of this: Roman Law, Anglo Saxon Law, etc... I'd probably say that even though we have a lot of problems in our country today, we have the best overall government. Even going back hundreds of years ago, the USA was cutting edge on human rights in contrast to other European countries. Rousseau (paraphrasing him), said that the English were the freest people on earth, but with a lousy form of government. I think the English knew this when they decided to form our country in 1776, hence ommiting the monarchy system which they felt to be a hindrance in building a good government.
The Dictatorship of the Proletariat in general and the Lenin/Stalin governments of the Soviet Union in particular. It was the most historically progressive form of association. It was economically, socially and politically superior, organized on socialist methods of production. It gave more expansive human rights, ones which existed in real life and not just on paper. It raised its own people's living standards in all measurable ways and inspired those abroad to fight and gain better rights.
Its achievements are unmatched in all history and this is because of the scientific validity of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
