Why is democracy expensive
Democracy in Germany
-All power of the state comes from the people
- Elected parliament as a representative representative of the people
-Freedom of speech
-Respect for human rights
- Rule of the people
-all citizens have the same rights and obligations
-Germany has been a democratic state since 1949
Why do you need a ruler and rules? Why can't democracy forego rule?
A: Because without rule our life would become chaotic. Rule in a democracy is necessary. Without rule, people would allow themselves anything. Without rule (no ruler) everything would not be regulated. Like in France, for example. A few days before the presidential election in France, road users will no longer be checked. And since she ceases her "rule" in this way (for 2 days), chaos lurks everywhere and the freedoms are exploited. Without some rule, the democratic system would collapse.
Democracy is expensive, cumbersome and boring, ineffective, not attractive.
Criticism of Democracy:
-Democracy is an expensive business
(In Germany there is the Bundestag and 16 parliaments in the federal states. In these parliaments there are 2500 members. You need a number of buildings and administrations with many employees. Plus the expensive governments in the federal government and in the states with their ministries and huge administrative apparatus.
-How is democracy supposed to be attractive when it costs so much money, when it is cumbersome and when the results are quite meager and incomprehensible?
Is dictatorship an alternative ?:
-Dictator doesn't need parliaments
- can decide very quickly, many reforms can be implemented in a short time
-This positive view can change quickly when decisions are made that you do not like. And one shouldn't even scold the ruler out of fear.
-Miss treatment by minorities and the threat of war (!!!) - (we have to ensure that such a black chapter in German history does not happen again! Did WE not have had bad experiences in history? That should be enough forever! )
Nevertheless, democracy serves a great purpose:
-It ensures freedom for the citizens
-there is an opposition, so that all processes in the country are adequately examined, criticized and controlled.
Even if democracy has some weaknesses in our eyes, after all experience there is nothing that guarantees people's freedom in a similarly effective manner and prevents the abuse of power.
Living in a democracy - example
- competing parties
- Freedom of expression, freedom of the press, freedom of belief
-Government bound by law
partially free states:
-a democratically elected parliament, but no completely independent press
(there are currently 58 partially free states)
-Governments did not come to power through free elections
-no freedom of expression and no freedom of the press
- Disregard of basic human rights
Persecution -> politically dissenters
- Use of torture with government approval (there are currently 47 non-free countries)
