Honestly, my first thought is: do I think that Indian or Cuban women are hotter on the whole? And then my second thought is, "Even if I thought that Cuban women were hotter, there are so many more women in India."

I'd be fine with a monarchy or dictatorship (or an oligarchy or whatever) as long as I agree with the laws and economic structure instantiated. Democracies are no more inherently likely to have laws and economic structures that I prefer.
That sounds like social democracy with a hint of fascism tbh

Well, the thing is that I've yet to run into a single person who has the same ideas as mine in detail . . . and I've yet to run into a single person who has said, "Yeah, that sounds like a good idea" after I explain what I'd do in some detail. So no matter what we call it, it's not going to match anyone else's ideas. ;-)

India by a mile. I like not worrying about getting taken away by the secret police in the middle of the night.
