It’s been argued that unless there’s an alternative to Democracy, for now it’s all we have. Having thought about it, I am inclined to disagree; it’s not all we have. There are other forms of governance in existence and although many of them, such as Islamism or various autocratic systems are repugnant and hold little ideological appeal to those of us outside the systems, the fact of their existence proves that other choices exist.
I still maintain that democracy is no longer practical because it is implemented by flawed people so lends itself to corruption. We need to think about that.
