In established democracies like USA, India, or UK, many are the undemocratic deviations that go unnoticed, overlooked, or even celebrated, though they take pride in calling themselves democratic. This in fact is an indication that more and more countries may seek to satisfy democracy only as a notion. Restrictive policies and practices are there in many states, effectively preventing people from expressing, or openly declaring their choice. Why should it be so?
I think this is a natural response. To whatever disturbances the societies are regularly experiencing.
I have a doubt here. Why should the societies that follow the ideal form of government, face difficulties?
I think I have found the answer. Democracy, in fact is a highly inefficient way for any species to govern itself. Mainly due to two reasons. One, a great share of constituents' sweat and toil is wasted for governing themselves, a rather nonproductive effort. And it plays no part at all, in the longevity and welfare of the species. Two, there can be large scale duplication and wasteful work just for meeting the needs of concordance of the society at large, while grappling with the miscellany of governance.
In the case of humans, this is further exacerbated by the unwritten duty all of us have given to ourselves, incessantly speaking good words about democracy. Since, as we continue to sing its praise, we miss to see all of the above.
