    EYTYXEITE!

    Dear JoeDas, have a look to your post: you wrote about a comparisson between 'Democracy' and 'corrupt monarchy or a despotism'.
    According all ancient Greek Philosophers, democracy was corrupt! In Plato's "State" as well as in Aristoteles' books you will read the term 'Democracy" as the system producing anarchy and tyranny!
    But if you use the word "corrupt" ( refering to monarchy or a despotism ) you have to make an equalization using same term for Democracy as well in order to be right, and then???
    According myself, the best system is the spiritual aristocracy founded by Plato. It is a very Nationalsosialistic aspect of the natural reality in all fields of the life. if you have enough time you are kindly suggested to study Plato's " "THE STATE" ( or "THE REPUBLIC" )
    Kindest Regards!

    George, is your last name Orwell? Because that sounds like Big Brother talking..."We need complete and total tyranny over the populace for their own good"

    Definitely a 'People's Republic' with 'The People's Government', a society without class distinctions, accomplished by revolutionary seizure of political power by the working class.

    Agreed to some degree - a socialist, or 'planned' economy with 100% taxation, no 'private property' or 'free enterprise' would be ideal, but I still like the idea of a single leader or a small controlling group (a 'dicktatorship', heh.), possibly with hereditary rule.

    LOL the working class can't even run their own lives effectively, let alone a nation. Class distinctions, properly applied, are essential; they force people to either better themselves or remain in squalor, and they give people something to which to aspire.

    I think that is basically my position .. the sort of peaceful anarchy normative to clan/tribe based systems, and that such systems naturally grow into true monarchy. Monarchies by their nature are far more benevolent than rule of the masses. Family, Sept, Clan, Tribe, Nation, Race, Church. Pretty simple and natural system to me.

    Is not a lynching Democracy in its purest form? Democracy is the rule of the 'mob'. In Revolutionary America, the Reverend Mather Byles said, "Which is better - to be ruled by one tyrant three thousand miles away or by three thousand tyrants one mile away?" - I think he was a prophet.
