Interesting article, I believe there is too much focus on the government and not the governed or territories involved. Read a lot covering good and bad tendencies in government giving favor to this form and that. Like in the real world, little consideration given to those subjected to said government. A educated, moral, civil society will thrive in a Demacracy. Whereas less organized “survival of fittest” populated land would require more iron fisted control to maintain order, such people would fall into chaos every time in a democracy.
What kind of land? Large spanning continent with diverse lands or a city state or something in between?Both of these questions must be answered before one can logically assign the best form of government. With out this knowledge there can be only one answer “it depends on the governed”.
Ironically IMO this article is a microcosm for how people think of these problems and questions in regard to government… No thought or regard for the subjugated people or the lands evolved.
"It was a racist PROGRESSIVE Democrat President, Woodrow Wilson, who premiered "Birth of a Nation" in the White House. That racist movie was based on a racist book written by one of Wilson’s racist friends from college. In 1915, the movie spawned the modern-day Klan, with its burning crosses and white sheets. Inspired by the movie, some Georgia Democrats revived the Klan. Soon, the Ku Klux Klan again became a powerful force within the Democratic Party. The KKK so dominated the 1924 Democratic Convention that Republicans, speaking truth to power, called it the Klanbake . In the 1930s, a Democrat President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, appointed a Klansman, Senator Hugo Black (D-AL), to the . Supreme Court."
