Re: Democracy ??

You can't _necessarily_ blame low turn out on those that eventually get elected. Much of a low turnout is apathy.

Thing about politics is that most people don't want to do it. Provided there is pan y circo.

Representative Democracy is far from perfect but it is the best option we have to peacefully eject those that take the piss.

If you present a better alternative the world is probably up for it.

Societies often prefer "benevolent dictator for life" to democracy. Dictators are two a penny, benevolent ones are harder to find.
