Some terminology hereOf course there is a newly coined term - meritocracy where smart people have large influence.
- Monarchy : Rule of a king.
- Oligarchy : Rule of few people or rule where a small group of people who have strong influence in government
- Democracy : Rule of people where people rule themselves
- Aristocracy : Rule of privileged upper class
- Autocracy : government in which one person has uncontrolled or unlimited authority over others
Now considering the current rule in our country, we all think autocracy may not be so bad. But an autocratic ruler does not like to hear arguments. So he will eliminate all people who do not agree with him which means most of the honest people would be removed. So he will end up surrounded by sycophants.
Unless this autocratic ruler is having a very good heart and really wants to do good to people, the subjects will be doomed.
BJP is asking vote for Modi, not for the party. And also Advani, Jaswant Singh etc are sidelined. We sure are headed towards autocracy - remember the days when India in Indira or some thing.
And still we shout in our shrill voices - abki baar ......
