The greatest form of deocracy is found on the rugby feild as two teams struggle for a win.
Imagine a team whose captain is the 'benevolent dictator' who orders and every one does.
It will never work nor will it ever last.
In our country's short history we have seen incidents of the dictator extending his power. The Mekere governmet went against the value of collective bargaining and used the special clause in the constitution that gave the govt exclusive veto rights and torpedoed the decison by the industrial tribunal to raise wages in the earl 00's. since then there has been no wage increase though the price of evrything else is skyrocketting.
I belive in the power of the masses though the time for vision to become reality. for PNG to reach its true potential through the principles of democracy i don't belive i will see in my life time, i can only dream and act in my small way.
