Q. 173.7( 3 Votes )

‘Democracy is all about political competition and power play. There is no scope for morality’. Justify the statement by giving arguments against democracy.

Answer :

It is a fact that in a democracy, the majority decides what is to be done, whether it is right or wrong. Thus it is a play of power, whether it is morally right or wrong.

Other arguments against democracy are


i. Democracy leads to corruption, as it is based on electoral competition. Elections can be won by money power, muscle power, or both.


ii. Many elected leaders do not know the best interest of the people. This problem leads to many wrong decisions being made.


iii. Many people at various levels have to be consulted, so that decisions are inordinately delayed.
