Government and dystopias

When I was looking over the list of forms of government I saw some that I was unfamiliar with but I found that liberal democracy would create the least dystopian society. Liberal Democracy can be defined as a representative government that uses liberal ideas to guide its structure. The people under this government have the ability to choose and elect officials from distinct parties white also using separate branches of government. People living in this society have protected civil rights and civil liberties. This form of government would also have some kind of constitution or a document representing the principles of government and the rights of the people. The goal of this form of government is to allow people to live in a fair and free society that also listens to their concerns. I think people living in this kind of society would be far from dystopian considering the individual rights and power they hold. Do I think this society would create a utopia? Not at all. But I do think it would produce happier individuals than most of the societies and governments around the world.

There is definitely some room for abuse of power from this form of government because there are individuals that are elected to be in charge. Although the people choose people to represent them , they could always have bad intentions that would not be revealed until their time in office. I do believe that this form of government would limit the potential abuse of power due to its liberal idealism. I was honestly stuck between this kind of government and Liquid Democracy . I initially was thinking that when people represent themselves in Liquid Democracy then it would be less dystopian but I think it would be entirely too chaotic for individuals to live happy and successful lives.
