The Blocks on Democracy

We live in a world where there is 'Democracy' and 'Dictatorship'. I am for 'Democracy', but as it was intended.

Alas, we rarely see such a concept (as it was intended). Within most 'Democratic'  Countries we see power struggles and interlaced corruption. Our world has many problems but the most pressing of all is the threat of Global Warming/Climate Change.

No Country in our world seems to be able to adequately address this problem. Most of the 'Rich' Countries have most of their wealth concentrated in less than 10-15% of their population. Some are even worse than this.

True 'Democracy' suffers as a result. The 'Rich' want to keep rich and, obviously, at the expense of the rest of the population. Anything that threatens their 'status quo' will be opposed. This is so entrenched that most Governments turn a 'Blind Eye' to any scientific statements related to climate change because it does not suit their agenda.

Oil and other natural resources so often rule in the economies of such countries and so often the emphases on these will be against any movement toward the alleviation of Climate Change/Global warming.

Is there actually any hope for us on this planet?
