Democracy vs. a Dictatorship

One of the best example I can think of is Kaiser wilhelm’s and Adolf Hitler’s regime over Germany. Even though these regimes were socially troublesome, Germany prospered economically during these periods . During Kaiser Wilhem’s rule Germany was

wealthy enough to compete with Britain’s royal navy which was the largest in the world. Hitler’s rule over Germany was bloody and tyrannous , where millions of people were killed, however Germany was one of the richest countries in the world during Hitler’s time , it had the largest army , navy and airforce after USA’s. Hitler’s regime not only brought monetary wealth but also discipline in the country which was very much required after the “cumbersome” democratic regime of Friedrich Ebert.

Democracy is a faulted type of government. This statement can be complemented with an example , that is ; present day India, which is a democratic country.
However, it is one of the most backward country’s in the world. More than 70% of the country is below the poverty line. The main form of industry is the primary industry which the monetary output is comparatively very low in comparison to secondary and tertiary industries.

Another example to push dictatorship forward, is Fidel Castro’s regime over Cuba. Fidel Castro has ruled Cuba for the past 50 years or more. Even though the main industry is primary ( exporting sugar and tobacco) , it has prospered over the years.

The fundamental principle of democracy is that it is “ For the people , by the people and from the people .” This is exactly why it is flawed, because the government is virtually run by the people , who always have different views . However, I believe that an ideal government is a dicatorship
