Gotta draw the line somewhere. What would you suggest? Communism,where one person makes a decision for everyone else? That you should fear.
A republic tharecognizes basic rights of freedom,self-defense, and property , and further that it is impossible for everyone to be well informed on every subject ,and that only by some form of delegated authority can a reasonable governance be achieved.I believe some men tried to institutue such a republic once but it appears their descendants are falling prey to the demagogues.
True communism is actually a form of democracy.It is also not practical for normal human beings with all their innate flaws.You may have been thinking of the various dictatorships run by vicious thugs who convinced their people and the world to call thugocracy "communism".
