Churchill?Naturally a man who was an abject failure in life and politics would support democracy, since it was the only way he could've ever achieved power.
Sadly for your argument, such as it is, our heritage and our way of life began with the advent of liberal democracy and a dose of egocentricity. We like it; that is who we are, so I don't know what you expect. Fortunately for you, if you truly admire totalitarian governments, you have plenty to choose from. And while you appear to argue totalitarian governments are immune from destroying our planet, that simply is not so. We are just, arguably, the best at it.Totalitarianism is, legitimately, the only form of government that can suppress the self-absorption of the general populace and destroy their self-centeredness so they may achieve greatness. With the advent of liberal democracies, we have seen climate change accelerate to catastrophic levels, we have seen the destruction of our heritage and our way of life in favor of a globalized pre-packaged culture ready for marketing, and we have seen an explosion of population simply unsustainable for this planet.
