I am not sure if I agree with this statement. At least for people in the western world. Why could you not move to another country?
In the case of the US I could see how it might benefit to have several governments due to the size of the nation and the multitude of cultures. This
could give more freedom to choose, but as another person pointed out, it might also just cause further division, and make things more difficult to
I too am skeptical about democracy. I think it's efficiency depends to much a the publics ability to understand matters of which they have little or
not preconditions to understand.
Democracies don't ensure that any nation will make the right choices, only that the majority will be satisfied or at least won't complain because they
have chosen it themselves. I am however not sure, if these are choices that the public are actually fit to make.
I think it could benefit us all if government experimented more with political platforms and social structures on a smaller scale. But I think it is
important to do so in collaboration with governments, as not to create parallel societies inside already existing societies.
In regards to the titel of the thread - Why not provide people a choice between governments ? - I am kinda under the impression, that the purpose of
elections are to provide people a choice between governments. No choice would be a dictatorship.
One could argue that the options you have to chose between aren't very good, but then we're back to the - why don't you just move to a country that
have a political platform that fits you better?
