Democracy vs Autocracy

New word: autocracy.  Autocracy is used broadly to mean “one person” rule, elected person or not.  Under this broad definition it includes monarchs, dictators, emperors, kings, presidents, tyrants, and any political or economic entity where final decisive power is in the hands of one person.  Autocracy has “0” teamwork at the bottom line decision level.

Conversely, democracy is teamwork at bottom line decision level.  This is accomplished when vote outcome determines decision.  Democratic decisions are made in small increments of consensus, by votes.


Democracy is superior governance to autocracy because decision power, divided up by voting structure, allows greater human input into decision-making.  Greater human input into decisions results in better decisions and decisions with greater consensus backing.

End hypothesis.

Under this hypothesis, autocracy is inferior governance to oligarchy.  Oligarchy, rule of the few, is inferior governance to democracy, rule of the many.

Going further, governance is improved when more people participate in decisions.  Democratic participation requires vote empowerment.  When more votes are involved in a decision, the outcome is better and the consensus stronger.


The best governance and policy is determined by greater vote participation, resulting in greater human input, resulting in greater decision consensus.

End hypothesis.

Bad service requires more waiters. Fires everywhere requires more fighters. Crime requires more police. Elected oligarchy requires more congresspersons. Elected monarchy requires more presidents. America lacks governance? Keep the congress and add 11k more. Keep the president and add 8 more. Democracy disperses power. Autocracy consolidates power. Step it up, America.  Be proactive.
