  1. The era of democracy ,is in reality ,coming to an end (all over).

    The pretense and disguises,however,will go on some years.

  2. He is absolutely right. Look what democracy put in the oval office today. This isn’t what the founding fathers intended.

  3. there is no DEMOCRACY anymore in the world !!! the only one DEMOCRATIC country in the world now has a DICTATOR that tries to control its citizens healthcare, phone calls, emails, etc. etc – YOU CALL THAT DEMOCRACY???

  4. The Torah does not prescribe any form of Government for society. Even the monarchy (“soim tosim alecha melech”) is not mandatory.

  5. To # $.

    The Torah is a strict set of laws and very undemocratic. The entire idea of democracy is directly opposed to Torah. For the Middle East democracy just doesn’t work, even on a practical level.
