Weaknesses of Auroran Democracy
An Essay by Rawa Wadu EM SCL KMD
Auroran democracy, while possessing numerous positive, attributes, has proven to possess weaknesses that make it a reliable system to pursue.
Auroran democracy is the tradition of democracy manifest in the political systems of the continent of Aurora. It is built on the social, political and economic evolution of the nations of Aurora. This system has been lauded and duplicated by other nations in the world for the freedom it purports to impart on the people and the political fairness and stability it claims to put in place. In this essay, this assertion will be refuted.
The Oan Isles has lauded itself continually for its role as a beacon of light due to its political system. This assertion is a self-aggrandizement. The Oan Isles has been ruled by an alliance of political parties called the Greens and the Pacifists that has largely supported the status quo in those countries. The Oan Isles has a selective and conditional humanitarian and foreign aid policy to espouse its strategic interests. This system was easily susceptible to terrorist destabilisation when the direct democratic online system that gave each citizen voting powers in law was attacked and destroyed by Al Jaheed.
Xagrurg claims to be democracy, but has struggled to maintain a stable government. The nation invaded a sovereign nation called the Yor Isles on the grounds that its interests are threatened. The government of the Republic of Xagrurg was usurped in a coup d’etat led by Erwin Pious and a fascist government was installed instead. When the nation lost the Auroran Pacific War, a cosmetically democratic government that was stilled controlled by the military was elected. Soon after it was threatened by civil unrest that has made the likelihood of the dissolution of the entire country a strong possibility.
The Auroran Continental Assembly possessed a democratically elected Parliament that was meant to act as the highest authority in the supranational structure. It failed to act expediently and decisively on the Al Jaheed terrorist attacks in Kostoria Obertonia, the civil war in Imperial Fandom and the Xagrurgian invasion of the Yor Isles.
Furthermore members of the Auroran Continental Assembly began a war that was based on imperialism with the Axis on one side and the Allied nations on the other called the Auroran Pacific War.This war has caused billions of kiribs of damage and thousands of death. The UK and its allies circumvented established process to begin the war in retribution for the attempted assassination of Lambertus VII.
In the end of the war, the politically embarrassed Oan Isles attempted a power grab, manipulating the support and power of the United Kingdom to coerce Tuvaltastan, Tivot, Axdel, Blueacia, and the Yor Isles to join a separate union called the Auroran Union.
With the In Defence of Peace conference fickle political considerations and self interests cultivated by the short-sighted policies of the ephemeral governments of Aurora has stalled any progress on pressing issues such as nuclear nonproliferation, reconciliation and the war on terrorism.
It is clear that while Auroran Democracy has merits, it is largely unstable and beholden to dangerous populist and elitist interests. As such this system cannot be relied upon as a universal system by which the nations of the world should choose to run their affairs.
