Last year the US public service was shut down by democracy. This temporarily put thousands of people out of work, and closed national parks and museums annoying tourists. At the time I said off handedly to a friend, “this indecisiveness would not happen under a dictatorship.” In this great piece by David Runciman of the Guardian he looks at the troubles with democracy and the alternatives.
