    Democracy's Biggest Fan Speaks Democracy effectively means that we, the people, get to choose who runs our country on our behalf. The role of a monarch as Head of State, embodying rule by inheritance, is, therefore, anathema to the purest concept of democracy. So, with this in mind, events in June 2003 caused a certain degree of amusement to me. Democracy 'The worst form of government-except for all the others.'

    systems come and go. Many systems have failed and many have succeeded. The British system of mercantilism was actually quite a good system for England. They raked in profits from their colonies.
