Democracy is defines as the government of the people by the people for the people.Ever since the nations have formed the governments to run them, both the types of govts have come and gone. No single form of government has emerged as a clear better option. Both have had their pros and cons. But the given statement is agreeable since implementation of democracy has been a herculean task wherever it has been tried.

The primary issue with democracy is that every act has to be passed by the representatives of the people. Now in a vast group, every decision will have some opposers to it - some due to ideological differences - hence no major proposals are implemented. For example, big countries like Inida, have people of different castes, cultures, races,anddemographies in the govt. Hence different ideologies makes it difficult to implement hard decisions.

Another issue with democracy is that it is a form oof government which is for the people,by the people and of the people. Since today's ever growing population has created nations with vast no of people, hence these democracies are becoming difficult to be managed properly by the representatives of the people who are answerable to the people for their every single decision. An independent form of government is needed to run these nations successfully.

On the other hand, some may argue that there are examples of big nations being run as democratic countries but the fact is that these nations are facing great difficulties in taking big strides towards development due to their democratic form of government. India, for example, has not been able to implement stern actions which it so badly needs to overcome poverty and over-population.

In sum, democracy might be a favored form of government due to its transparency but it certainly is more cumbersome and poses great challenges in implementing decisions. Dictatorship on the other h
and, gives far more freedom and independence to the government.
