...having the right to eat, drink and a place to sleep in a dictatorship is 10 times better than dying with hunger in a democracy. In calcutta, I saw a documentary where the city garbage collectors collect dead human bodies from the streets at night. that is without mentioning the status of women in the society (maybe not the system). Democracy in India, I already told you guys that India is a Povertocracy and not a democracy. You can say Canada is a democracy, it is swallowable, but India, I do not think so.

By mentioning Iran, Iran has a walfare system and government housing that the USA does not have...refer to Bowling for Burlington for more info...
