Advantages and disadvantages of a democracy?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Pros:

  • citizens are given full civil rights and freedoms , including freedom of press, freedom of speech, right to employment, right to religion etc.
  • everyone is given a voice, through elections, referendums and other public conferences
  • the majority always "wins". What the majority of the citizens of a country want, this is what is given.

Cons:

  • it is a weak government - turnover of governments is frequent
  • there is often a lot of interest in political gain, and power gain by politicians and those in parliament, rather than the search for what is best for the country.

Who brought communism to Russia in 1917?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Party brought "communism" to Russia in 1917 through the October Revolution. It should be noted that true communism was never instituted in Russia (or in any other country for that matter). The revolution brought a socialist state to Russia. The theory was that socialism would eventually evolve into communism generations later. It never did.

What were some of the main ideas of communism?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Communism, as meant by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky and others, seeks to overthrow capitalism and the rule of the capitalist class and establish a dictatorship of the proletariat. That is, a state that will openly serve the interests of the working class and repress the capitalists if the situation calls for it, with violence if necessary. A socialist society will then be built while spreading socialism throughout the world. When there is socialism and stability throughout the world, a transition process will be undertaken to mmove towards a classless society free of war, poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The first step was to have an agricutural revolution. This was where a country could gain food and a stable economy. Second there needed to be a industrial revolution. This was the factory and mechanical part that lead to a capitalist society. (Like America) Next, there needed to be a bloody revolution, in which the coomon people would rise up and take control of their oppressors. After that, there would be a socialist government with some government control. Finally the govenment would fade because it was not needed and become a communist society.
