In countries where wealth distribution is hugely lopsided, democracy cannot be compatible with privately financed electoral campaigns because many citizens receive handouts from politicians, who will woo the voters into their sides. Many voters do not air their concerns since they get waylaid by the politicians and their financiers. Democracy concerns the equal treatment of all the citizens, because there are forums that care about the welfare of all the citizens. It is not a must that all the law abiding citizens have an opportunity to share their concerns, because the status quo is the driving force in this case. Many people depend upon their representatives for any interpretation of the legal activities or documents. Democracy can not be compatible with such campaigns because there is no consideration of the individuals at the grassroots but only the wealthy people who fund politics.

Democracy is achieved when the majority of the population rules. The ruling class determines the distinction between the dictatorship and democracy. When the majority has democracy, they tend to misuse that opportunity and cause mayhem in the manner decisions are made by the government for they question all moves of the government. This is because, those who rule thinks in terms of power, while the subjects think in terms of justice. When majority rule, they think of more power, hence oppress the minority. In cases of dictatorship, the minority who rule against the majority still fear that if they oppress the people, they will meet rebellion. They employ strategies to counter the rebellion by harnessing the people through different means.

In countries where there is unequal wealth distribution, there exist a large gap between the rich and the poor. This brings a gap in the level of literacy acquisition, hence a lot of illiterates on the side of the poor people. In such a society, social stratification is evident, and the poor citizens do not have a say in the manner governance is going to be shared. They become spectators in their countries, because their voice is ignored by the mighty in the society.

The politicians get support from the wealthy individuals, which become an oath that they will reciprocate the good treatment once they are in power. In this case, the poor citizens do not benefit in anything because they have nothing to offer to the system. Democracy becomes inapplicable because the factions involved do not have equal capabilities. Ethics becomes a theoretical thing because autocracy reins the society whereby the corrupt are rewarded, and the meek are oppressed by the unjust systems created by the corruptible leaders.

In a country where the wealth distribution does not equal, the most likely system of government is the totalitarian system of politics. The grassroots feel as if they are offered democracy but it is just an illusion caused by political gimmicks. The political system does not need acceptance, hence making democracy a non sensual issue. In the traditional sense, it does not require acceptance for it enforces all that by creation of political apathy, by means of rational bureaucracy, and communication that is based on violence. Even if there is democracy, it is an illogical democracy which is just a reversed autocracy. The main aim of the state is to have power, which it achieves through the enemy of state concept. The ‘enemy of state’ concept states that individuals may be removed for contravening the rules set by the state. Coercion is used to belittle the citizens so that they may not emerge as a power that opposes the central power of governance. The policy making is just an illusion, because it makes the policies that best suits themselves, but not the other individuals.

In the states where the majorities are in the poor citizens’ bracket, there are movements that come up to oppose the ruling system. They are freedom liberators who are opposed by the government. Governments tend to serve just two roles, which are; protecting the citizens from outside attack, and internal attack where citizens attack one another. The government forms large armies and navies that punish criminals, or even join international bodies to have protection from attackers. The citizens are also protected from one another by creation of rules which define what crime is, and what it is not. Jails are created for the same citizens, but the criteria of sending people to the jails differ because the government will allow more freedom to some individual than others. This is not the true spirit of democracy, because the equity of the citizens is not guaranteed as the government purports.

Sometimes democracy is an illusion or a façade to confuse the majority. Democracy is not based on the goodness or the justness of the system, but the government follows the rules. If it does not follow the rules, it is not leading a democratic system. When a government has been helped by private financiers, there is a lot of leaning to the supporting faction, rather than concentration to the needs of the majority. In that regard, the masses are given alternatives which lead them to believe that they are ruling themselves.

The minorities have to conform with the influence of the majority in democracies because the lesser the group, the less say they have in the policy. Voting is the best tool in constituting a government, because people are given the right to make a choice in what government they need in the place.

The voters are faithful when they vote politicians in, but on the other side, the politicians are not ready to do worthy things for the citizens. Politicians do not offer policies that improve the lives of the individuals in interchange of the votes they receive from the citizens. They are there to represent the needs of those who have the same ideologies as they have. In the Anglo-American system of politics, the individuals are not the main concern or political entities, but the sub cultures.


It is not a must that all the law abiding citizens need to have opportunities to talk so as to have a democratic government, but the rules that the citizen abides in need to be followed to the letter. Many people do not have opportunities to direct the manner in which governance needs to be operated. It is not only the authoritarian regimes that have been confronted with the wind of change, but even the democracies have also been in the same problem. Campaigns do not need to be privatized, because they deny individuals the right to decide willingly. Incentives corrupt the judgment because people tend to vote in lie with the person who offered the incentives. This is because their psychology has been affected to follow a certain trend of making decisions. If a democracy is created in that manner, it would be very difficult to implement all that it intends to implement. It is a global phenomenon to refurbish democracy, because it a facade in many countries.
