Could Dictatorships Be A Better Option For Developing Countries?

1001 words - 5 pages

“Government of people, by people and for the people is called democracy”, (Aristotle) the Greek or more precisely Aristotle defined democracy this way. In these recent times though, democracy has changed in shape and form and has constantly evolved since the last 100 years or so.
