All systems of governance look good on paper but human nature takes over.
Democracies, republics, monarchies, socialism, communism, all turn out the same.
The many are made into wage slaves and livestock for the enrichment of the few.
Ever heard of a socialist leader that lived at the same income level as the people? Nope....they're livin large while the people starve.
Wanna live a life of freedom in any country - become a cop or a politician. The "law" and human dignity mean nothing to you. You can do whatever you want, no matter how wrong or perverse, and your buddies will cover for you.
Otherwise, your only other option is to be quiet, pick up your shovel, and get in line.
