How could any serious leader consider democracy? It isn't even close to mature and has some serious administrative flaws.

At least monarchy has been around for a while and the underlying structure is well understood.

What is worst about democracy is the inability to make a catastrophic decision disappear. Anyone who argues that giving the government god-like powers is a bad thing (as the restrictive democracy treats the admin like a lowly untrustworthy grasshopper) clearly hasn't worn a crown much where the philosophy is giving enough rope to hang one's enemies.

I've yet to have a convincing argument that democracy is worth looking at for a serious governmental system yet (at least while monarchy is so superior).

(Yes, I know this is somewhat unfair. Nevertheless, it practically wrote itself.)

    There is, of course,

    use strict; use warnings; use Perlmonks qw/poll/; open(my $from, "<", previous_node('latest poll')) or die "Couldn't fin +d previous_node\n; local $/; my $prev = <$from>; close($from) s/monarchy/Fortran/gi; s/democracy/Perl/gi; print $prev;
