    I believe that communism is a system based on equality of property, while democracy is based on equality of decision rights.
    And ideally, no matter who controls the factory, in a democracy they should obey to the government, which is controlled by people.
    But as I said, there is no democracy in the current world.

    Democracy is supposed to be a system controlled by people. As long as all they can do is vote for people without any direct impact, the term democracy isn't really accurate.

    If I'm not mistaken, politicians used "democracy" as a pejorative term to mock others' political programs. At some point an US politician reversed this "attack" and used it to help his own campaign, and that's how it started. But the system didn't change, only the definition of a democracy did (in favour of politicians).

    Democracy doesn't exist for now, may it be in the US or anywhere else. This word started to be used by american politicians to get popularity, yet the political system never reached democracy.
    We can't say that democracy is good because we never saw any, and the idea itself doesn't sound so efficient either.
