Why do some people think that democracy produces less effective government?


ANSWER

It always worries about majorities and public opinions


SOLUTION
Some people think that democracy produces a less effective government. It is true that non-democratic rules are very quick and efficient in decision making and implementation. It is because they do not bother about deliberation in assemblies or worry about majorities. Democracy is based on the idea of deliberation and negotiation. So, some delay is bound to take place. But because it follows procedures, its decisions may be more acceptable to the people and more effective. Democracy ensures that decision making will be based on norms and procedures. A citizen who wants to know if a decision was taken through the correct procedures can find this out. This is not seen in a non-democratic government.
