    I think that some of the advantages would be having the right to vote, being involved in decisions while disadvantages would be the fact that there are more poor people in the wold, violence is greater, and the intolerance of difference (esp. when displayed by racisim)

    A democracy also provides everyone with equal opportunities to succeed.

    Another disadvantage is that democracy can be messy, as the current arguments over health care illustrate. A dictator tells people what to do -- and the job is done. It used to be said about Mussolini, Italy's fascist dictator in the 30s and 40s, that at least he made the trains run on time.

    Thank you. I never heard of Mussolini.

    You should keep in mind that poverty, violence, intolerance, and racism have nothing to do with democracy! These exist everywhere, no matter the form of government.

    Ms. Sue's points are correct.
