Re: [IAC#RG] Alternatives to parliamentary democracy ?

It may be impossible to have peoples democracy as the big wigs will always create their own way . In election for members of Zilla Panchayats , 50 % seats are reserved for ladies. These are manipulated in such a way that  ladies elected as members are controlled by their husbands / father . They have to sign on dotted lines and have no say at all because most of them are illiterate having no knowledge of their authority as elected members.

Peoples democracy is seen from the grassroots level to the top and not vice versa. Here, people are supreme and decisions are made through gram sabhas, assemblies of the people and not by invisible hands.

The aim of Peoples democracy is to overthrow feudalism and achieve independence from colonialism. It is a revolution that will bury the capitalist system and all other systems of exploitation once and for all.

"The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear." In an era of severe austerity, rising inequalities and precarious employment, the discontent engendered is leading to morbid symptoms in the form of the rise of extreme rightwing and neo-Nazi forces. Racism, xenophobia and anti-migrant feelings are being whipped up".
