We all know that democracy means rule of the people. However, If a decision is adopted by the majority, It doesn't mean that It's totally true. Especially If the majority haven't good education level. In this case, should we consider that democracy Is dangerous for the global interest of the people ? What should we do in such cases
I hope you get my point

Democracy can be a bad idea, if the vast majority of the people are uneducated and are having a low IQ. Look at the case in countries such as Somalia and Congo. Do you think that democracy will survive in these areas? People in such areas tend to elect candidates who belong to the same ethnic and religious group, irrespective of their capability.

Sorry guys, but I cannot recall a single country (except perhaps Switzerland) where democracy is actually democracy, and not just a simulation of democracy. So what are we talking about?

Democracy in the US is certainly flawed, but democracy is necessary because there is no better system of government. To perfect democracy in the US, we need to get rid of the electoral college, and use the popular vote.

Yes. Even those who are scornful of democracy and who would fancy their chances if allowed to grab what they could would lose something of real value in a non-democratic society. Few of us value properly the benefits of living in a coherent, integrated society, where everyone has a value because everyone has a vote.

No. Sometimes democracy is used only as an excuse to do certain or random things that may actual end up ranting around putting blame on the government. Freedom and power of the peopleis not always good.  Sometimes it is the one that ruins good governance.

This issue was often in history discussed ,and most of the old Greek philosophers agreed that of all the possible rules democracy is the worst one.
They explained that even though it seems like the best solution the problem is people are easily manipulated,directly or indirectly.
Indirectly by lies,propaganda and fake news(yes,even back then),and directly by bribing politicians and corruption.
When you think about it in most modern countries democracy is completely new thing,
in the past there was mostly some kind of absolute ruler,good or bad.How this new kind of governance will work out,we're yet to see..

For me democracy is important because people are allowed to express freedom. The ruling doesn’t matter that much, but it is the freedom that is very important. Imagine the world without freedom.

In my opinions democracy is made for people who understands peace like those in Europe, North America, i mean the Western World but when it comes to the Arab countries, Latin countries and some parts of Africa, one needs to have a firm hand over them because they can easily get out of control at any time.

Right. Though it can also be easily manipulated and bent by "learned and intelligent" people for their own interests. Though of course if you're going to be givem a cboice between democracy and dictatorship or communism,  people will be free to fight for their rights in a democratic government

The first question, though, is what do we mean by democracy? I think there are three possible meanings.

1 - Political
2 - Social
3 - Economics

No,i don't think democracy is necessary,an absolute ruler can also be a good way of governance.
There are many examples of rich,well regulated states which have a monarch as a head of state,
and on the other hand you have pretty poor and corrupt democracies,so it's never black and white.

Really depends on the given situation. Other countries may need an iron fist but then transitions to a democratic kind and then federal. Mostly depends on what the people want or what the nation needs at the moment of election of leaders. But I believe democracy is giving the mass the power to choose a viable leader and I'm happy knowing I chose the right leader to rule the country.

A direct democracy is certainly dangerous because large portions of the public are completely ignorant to many political topics. Also, a direct democracy is literally a tyranny of the majority. That's why I believe a representative democracy/republic is a much better option than direct democracy.

You need to specify where you need to apply democracy. In government politics, organizational or corporate matters?

The need to use this form of leadership will vary in the environment and so much other factors.

You’re exactly and perfectly right about that. Other countries need a different form of government besides democracy because not every country needs and wants what other countries want. To make it short, every country is different that’s why they need different forms of government.

Despite the fact that democracy gives the people freedom, and people are known to have diverse ideas and intentions, it does not always bring about conformity to situations. For this reason, I don't think democracy should be always necessary.

  A good book on the topic, public domain, is Montesquieu's the Spirit of law.

That said, it is also important to understand what the law is too that transcends even nations.  Recommended readings are the tryal of John Lilburne and John Whorton, and also Joh's Locke's, the two Treatises of civil government.  Both are public domain.  By the time you are done the Lilburne case, you may then want to learn more about Roman legal practices.  Many online resources about that too.
