Democratic Oligarchy is a form of government in which there is democracy for some. Types of democratic oligarchies include the European parliament and the North Korean government. It is considered quite an effective policy as it is democratic, which appeases Human rights campaigners and at the same time there isn't a conflict in opinion as only a select few can vote. A recent report also shows that a democratic oligarchy is instigated in many countries with completely conflicting views such as being instigated in Communist Republic Democracies like North Korea and Capitalist Republic Democracies like the USA. This just goes to show that the Democratic Oligarchy is the new perfect government system for a new, more liberal world.
edit First recorded usage
The first use of this governmental system was in Ancient Greece which has always been claimed to be the first true democracy by historians. This claim is of course true as Ancient Greece had free speech and votes for everyone apart from women, slaves, immigrants, under 21s, Romans,
gays, slavs, gypsies, communists and traitors of society (anyone who opposed the government).
When the Romans invaded (a long time ago BC) they stole everything of the Greeks from religion to industry and money. This left Greece in huge financial trouble until some Northern barbarians bailed them out. The Romans also took their government system. They took democratic oligrachy to heart and narrowed down the oligarchy to just one hundred senators, forming the council of Centurions in Rome. Every year they elected a new Emperor and then at the end of the year they stabbed the Emperor to death to allow a new life-long Emperor's reign to begin.
edit The Tree Model of Democratic Oligarchy
In 1934, Hans Kubertstringer, came up with the Tree Model as the perfect example of democratic oligarchy. It is split into two parts: the house that is represented (House of Representatives) and the House that is unrepresented (House of Unrepresentatives/Plebs). The House of Representatives goes at the top of the tree and the House of Plebs goes at the bottom of the tree.
This Tree Model is used to represent the number of people who are represented by the democratic oligarchy system. The wider the part of the tree, the more power that section have and the more people in the pictures on the tree in one section, the higher the percentage of the population are part of that section.
The Tree Model is used extensively by many governments simply to baffle their citizens and justify that democratic oligarchy is the way forward, as it obviously is.
Democratic oligarchy has manifested itself, like a virus, a good, harmless virus into every corner of human society. The UN operates using democratic oligarchy by having a general assembly of all the nations (House of Unrepresentatives) who don't get a say in anything and a hand-picked UN security council made up of 12 nations (House of Representatives) who make all the decisions.
Many companies now use democratic oligarchy to run their businesses. This is true in the fact that the company management system is composed of the Manager and fellow advisors (House of Representatives) and the share holders (House of Plebs). An example of a company that uses democratic oligarchy is the company Magrathea.
