    You and some random peopleon your flight crash onto a island. You are the only ones. There's no escape from the island, so your forced to create a government. You all decide on your government being a democracy. What are some positives to your government being a democracy?

    We can vote people off of the island when they try to trick us into doing their homework. [​IMG]

    Dissallows unequal distribution of power aka dictatorships. You shouldn't be allowed to live in America if you can't write an essay / do a project on why democracy is a good form of government

    It wouldn't be good. Democracies are not known for quick decisions. On an island, you need 1 strong leader to organize and set tasks for people.

    Democracy:
    What should we do first? Foor or shelter? Vote!
    *half raise hand for food, half for shelter. 3 hour discussion follows, you get neither, night falls, and everybody gets sick.

    Other:
    You! Go get food!
    You! Go get shelter!


    Trust me, if you are writing a paper on this the teacher will give you a good grade if you say this.

    Aristotle said that democracy is bad because it favors whomever has the most influence, and not for the common good XP
