Democracy is not a viable method of governing large states, says Jeff Deist.

That’s not because aristocracy or monarchy is any better, I hasten to add. It may be true, as Churchill said, that “democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms.”

(Well, theoretically, each of these 3 forms of government may be best for its own branch of government — legislative, judicial, and executive.)

It’s because there is no viable method of governing large states.

The obvious implication is that large states should cease to exist through a process of massive political decentralization.
