If this is Democracy why does Leader make all decisions?

Postby Diannaoguo » Fri Feb 01, 2019 3:57 pm

last thread was frozen because moderation opinion it is too harmful to sentiments of sick people to discuss whether or not we should tell them it is bad to make themselves sick

so now we move onto new interesting topic


would you support more democracy or less democracy for your nationstate if having democracy means that issues will be resolved democratically, by legislature, and not autocratically, by button click of you, leader?

nationstates game allows paradoxical situation of universal sufferage free speech democracy but with unpopular policies like conscription and human sacrifice

if your nation has democracy, then shouldn't legal policy decision be made with democratic process, and you only have veto option?

what about losing election? if you have democracy and you lose election, why aren't you shut out from policy decision making for period of time, or for forever if term limits enabled?

I imagine that when your country is a democracy then the specific solution to an issue you chose is the one that your country voted to put into law. You're just the fickle fingers of fate or destiny, invisibly guiding them to the decision that would be passed.

Perhaps the Leader is a incorporeal consciousness who moves from body to body, giving the illusion of democracy...

Well, theoretically you could warp spacetime but that's like real hard unless you have a lot of mass.

I suggest sending Christians, they have mass quite often.
