Why do people like democracy?
I think people like democracy due to lack of education and the knowledge of reality. In democracy people befool the voters giving argument in favor of democracy while I say it is fraud because horse trading is the main fault of this system. It is the system in which is counted head either be a head of a donkey or a scholar . There is no definition of democracy all over the world. Do you agree?
People are happy with a place in the world when it is one they have chosen. They hate it when they are forced to be somewhere they don't want to be.
Democracy allows most people the ability to give their input and shape events. This is why having as much local decision making as possible is best instead of a mega-state that holds infrequent elections. When a majority a thousand miles away vote to change school curriculum, take money without concern for how you need to use it, issue regulations that make your life much harder, even a LARGE democracy that allows majorities that don't live near you do decide your life create animosity.
I agree that a mob is the worst case example of democracy. That is why the United States and a number of other nations are Republics, with limits on what the voters can do. For example, they can't vote in to take away one person's property or outlaw rights for a small minority. That balances the desires of the majority with the rights of the minority.

Republicans want to empower the individual by keeping taxes low. They believe individuals, (through the self-effort...

Yes, the Democratic Party is U.S. blacks' worst enemy, and that is true because I have seen all the damage that party has done to black people with my own eyes. In fact, that party has inflicted more damage on U.S. black society than the whites who enslaved its forebears ever did. That is true...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...
