Democracy and Dictatorships

People talk about Australia being a democratic country and some think that all things that a democracy does are good and all things a dictatorship does is bad. But it is more complicated than that. Also, Australia is mostly not democratic. I start by quoting one of the American founding fathers.

We chose not to have a democracy as we believed it would not work.

Some people, particularly some Vietnamese I have met will tell you that everything done in a Communist state is bad and everything done in a Democratic state is good. Of course, any simple analysis will show that this is not true. I am sure there is a PDH involved in determining the degree that this is true.
