Best Forms of Government

The Top Ten

1 Democracy

Democracy either as a republic or monarchy is the best form of government that respects freedom of speech, press, choice, religion, thought without persecuting people. Before you start, I mean representative liberal democracy, not direct democracy, had to say it before some right-wing "we're a republic" yank would come out and whine, also UK, Canada, France, Japan, Australia, Greece are democracies and so is the US, although the US would be a real democracy if it just get rid of the obsolete Electoral Collage that ignores the voters.

Although it may be screwed up (That's on you America), it is still better than communism and dictatorship.

It is easy to say democracy means by the people of the people and for the people but practically today's democracy is different it is by the bureaucrats/politicians of the b/p and for the b/p as for as Indian democracy is concerned - huxaif

The only good democracy is Direct. Our democracy is little more than a joke that is used by the bourgeoisie to keep their power... - DieGedankenSindFrei

2 Constitutional Monarchy

Lit

Its pretty cool

Look up the stats

3 Absolute Democracy
4 Republic

Beyond a doubt the American system is best, especially because the founders flirted with the concept of a democracy but opted for a Republic back by an Electoral College to insure all individual states has a voice in its government. Democracy's fail. Why? Look at the America Civil War, the majority was against it. Take for example when the LGBT community was first demanding acknowledgement. The majority of the country was against it. Take Civil Right for the Black man, the majority was against it. How about gun right? , How about women's rights?. What about abortion? Etc. Thank God we are a Constitutional Republic with a twist (Electoral College).

Democracy is number 1? You've got to be kidding, the only reason people voted for Democracy over this is because they don't even know what a Republic is. Democracy is tyranny of the majority. Hitler and the Nazi party for example rose and gained power through Democracy. A Republic however, or to be more exact, a Constitutional Republic protects the rights and freedoms of the people while limiting the power of the government, preventing tyranny, unlike Democracy.

Democracy and Republic are first no doubt. Next is monarchy because monarchs can be regulated (example, Britain is technically a constitutional monarchy). All of the rest suck because there is no guarantee of the rights of the people.

With out this form of government California and New York would have greater say in how our country would be run... Rather unsettling. The Republic form of government gives all areas of a country an equal voice.

5 Absolute Monarchy

A King should have the unquestionable and divine right to rule the people, without parliaments and constitutions dictating what they are or aren't able to do.

6 Epistemocracy
7 Meritocracy
8 Krytocracy
9 Monarchy

If a person is told all their life "you must serve the country; this is your life, and always will be your life". They will serve the country as a monarch.

If a person is told all their life "you are better than other people, you will always be better than other people; there is no need to serve others". They will serve themselves as a politician.

Reasons I Love monarchy.
There are castles.
There's royal guards and carts.
Plus there are royal relics like crowns and jewels.
But to be honest, I like constitutional monarchies best

P.S the scandinavian kingdoms of Sweden, denmark and norway are the surpreme monarchies. πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡©πŸ‡°πŸ‡³πŸ‡'

10 Aristocracy

Aristocracy means by definition a form of government in which 'the best' rule over the country. 'The best' means the people who have the most qualities and skills to do so. Moving the power from the citizens to 'the best' is better for the society, since most average citizens don't always take the right decisions and the most qualified people do.

The Contenders

11 Theocracy Theocracy

A Theocracy is a religiously ruled country, similar to a Papacy, like Vatican City - GamingGodPrime

A country run by music, as the image states.

That would be cool/

12 Communism

I feel a Communist nation with a semi-democratic electoral system may be beneficial to the world today. Communism or Capitalism refers directly to the Economic Axis of politics, not to the process in which government legislature is created. In Democratic Communism, the nation would be ruled by the people and Communism would be a choice. An Authoritarian Communism (like Stalinism) tastes sour when compared to the comfortably bland Marxist system.

Communism simply refers to a Socialist state in which all class divisions and economic difference has been resolved and private property does not exist. Though this may not be the most comfortable, with enough allowance for personal ideologies and creative passions, a Communist state done right could be the next step to achieving a (somewhat) lasting world peace.

No it is not that’s enough of that

Communism is the ideal form of government. We need to convert our government into a dictatorship of soviet communism. We will have Steve Buscemi as our dictator. He will melt the souls of our enemies with his beautiful eyes.

There should be right wing communism, like Cuba, China, Vietnam and USSR.

Say no to Indian Leftist Communists.

13 Oligarchy

Rules more than one

14 Socialism
15 Dictatorship

By far the greatest the people don't deserve to rule there own country because that's like letting them do whatever they want now pwople should of course have freedoms to do some things like have there own buisnesses without asking, having there own property, and having there own jobs stuff like that but the whole parlamant, congress that stuff is stupid and when I say they should have there own freedoms that's a privalage if they abuse it then I guess the dictator can stop that but since a president can't then the country will be partially corrupt if the dictator is smart with his power being a good person being nice letting people have things they want if they are worthy of it then that is a good dictator the dictator should be allowed to do whatever they want to do though just as long as they are good with it and if you don't like the country then LEAVE!

This one rules if u are the right leader that will make your country the best then your country will be a strong dictatorship along with the fact that no one can stop u

16 Authoritarianism

Kill bad people

17 Fascism

Heil Hitler

(basically the government controls everything under a dictator. extreme nationalism, although not rascism because that would be nazism. although, I do agree with nazi economics, I think that xenophobia is useless.)

So let's take the goals of a typical liberal state. It wants to assert the rights of the individual while allowing the state to exist to enforce basic law and to protect rights.

Now, a FACIST state, on the other hand, flips that around. It asserts the rights of the state while admitting the individuals have to exist in order for the state to have meaning. it isn't about the individual, the individual is going to inevitably die after their 70, 80 or 90 years are up. the state can last for millennia though. therefore, it is the state that is important.

A good analogy for why fascism works the best is the human body. the human body is comprised of each individual cell. the cell is born, it lives, it is productive, and it dies. the result of billions and ...more
