    I would say Democracy, the people of the country has the power, because the people is the one that decides what they want for their country and waht they expect from the leader of that country... and the leader (president) will look up to at least accomplish most of what the people ask and most of the time the president will look up for the best of the country and not so much for himself... knowing as well that if the people is not happy he can loose his power.

    I go for democracy.. a government should always be for the people and by the people... why do we have a government? it is because Men wanted to have one..they wanted people who will lead them to a peaceful society.. Democracy would be better if people cooperate... the only threat for this kind of government is the apathy or the lack of trust of people...

    There are problems with Democracy though.

    For example:

    There are 15 people living and voting in a city.
    There are 5 people living and voting in a rural area.

    I guarentee you the rural areas will get shafted in votes every time. Does that mean what the city folk vote for is better, and truly in the interest of all the people? Well, perhaps its really just in the interest of the city folk, and since they are the majority, they get what they want. Not cool.

    Edit: I remembered a quote from a while back, I can't seem to remember who said it, but ah well, I suppose just the quote will have to do. "I reject any form of government in which the opinion of the village idiot is given the same weight as the opinion of Aristotle". Thoughts?

    Re: What type of government do you like the most?

    I think our opinions have been rather scewed on Communism by the fact that the few examples of it actually occuring more resemble a dictatorship than anything else. Ideally, the garbage man getting payed the same as the doctor is a great idea, and it would eliminate the constant rich-poor contrast that occurs in capitalist societies. I think books like Animal Farm demonstrate how a good communism could run(Err...before the leaders go corrupt with power and all..).

    Then again, individual profit drives forth most technological innovation, and generally proves more efficient.

    Sort of related, but I've been thinking about the population problem in China lately. Whilst a more authoritative government uses a one-child policy in an attempt to stem the problem, I keep wondering how it is a Democracy would cope with such a conflict. I'm really just thinking out loud here though.
