Monarchies can have a bad king. But Democracies always have a bad king.

Traditional power arrangements can be stupid and ineffective
. They are by definition nepotistic, and often nothing gets done. But they have the important function of impeding the access of evil sociopaths to the highest reaches of power. You really don’t want those people up there; all they do is suck the coffers dry, and hurt everyone they fancy in order to satisfy their greed. Democracy, by opening the levers of power to free competition, all but guarantees that evil sociopaths will end up ruling everything. People who have no issue with giving sick men access to girl’s toilets, or bringing hostile barbarians to rape the women of their country. A biological case against democracy | Bloody shovel

Your Say

The sociopath and psychopath types do make nice lamp post hangings. Check the Louvre for some art work.

Well yeah, of course, silly.
It's built into the system and it's the natural result when people are given unlimited power and no immediate responsibility for their behavior.

Scan that parchment under glass long and hard and you will not see even one mention of criminal penalty for criminal behavior, as normal citizens must abide.

Imagine how different and grand your own life would be if you were in that position.

Just imagine.

Notice that I didn't even get involved with the "ignore the individual and pay attention to the mob" thing.

Hans Herman Hoppe's great book
"Democracy, the God that failed"
makes the case superbly.
