- The biggest problem with Democracy is that it is predictable. …
The other problem being that a benevolent Fascist government is a idealist pipe dream that will never exist as all humans naturally seek their own gains, thus any government with such absolute power will always come to protect that power at the price of its citizens. At least with democracy if everyone's being selfish, it'll still reflect the best interests of the majority of the country, whereas a fascist government could end up only representing and benefiting as little as 1%
Also, furthermore, a Fascist not having to fear not being relected can do anything he has to in order to facilitate the progress of the state.
I.E: Social Security.
While in a Democracy, you HAVE to be selfish, because if you do not work for the people, who as we discussed are mostly concerned with their own issues, you are pushed out for someone who does.
In a Democracy, short term solutions always win out, because most people simply aren't concerned about 60 years into the future; something a Fascist government would NEED to be, because the goal is the thriving of the state ITSELF rather than any particular politician or group.
I disagree! Most of human history was run by Fascist-like governments. Monarchies, councilmen, etc, yet in all of said human civilization, we can only pick out a baker's dozen of truly malevolent rulers.
Most people are not malevolent; on the contrary, they are either benevolent and WANT to help, or are generally indifferent or incompetent. Having someone that truly desires to make people suffer, or takes to better themselves at the expense of others, is truly rare.
Since I honestly do not believe HAVING power or wealth inherently makes you a bad person, I do not see why someone being an absolute ruler would cause them to suddenly become malevolent. 9/10, the leader you get would indeed be wise and just OR just kind of meh.
Plus, as you just noted, in Democracy, everyone's selfish, so a leader only has to appeal to this selfishness to get elected ,and doesn't even have to follow through, or worse yet, just convinced people that X is the problem and that he will solve X when he gets elected. I'd argue it's EASIER for a malevolent person to be elected in a Democracy than as a leader of a Fascist state.
Remember. A system doesn't have to be perfect; it just has to be better than what we have.
