Democracy does not seem to work well in most places… Why did Filipinos elect the son of a brutal dictator? Why is Trump so popular in America? Even Hitler was elected by the Germans in WW2… Of course, non-democratic countries are universally worse with awful human rights abuses, corruption, and stagnation. I guess this is why they say democracy is the best of a set of bad systems of government. Maybe some form of republic or representative democracy might be better?
