    الديمقراطية تحل محل الانتخابات من قبل الكثيرين غير الأكفاء للتعيين من قبل القلة الفاسدين.

    Demokratie ersetzt Wahl durch die inkompetenten Vielen und Ernennung durch die korrupten Wenigen.

    η δημοκρατία αντικαθιστά τις εκλογές από τους ανίκανους πολλούς για διορισμό από τους λίγους διεφθαρμένους.

    民主主義は、腐敗した少数による任命の代わりに、無能な多数による選挙を代用する。

    демократия заменяет выборы некомпетентными для назначения коррумпированными.

    民主由无能的人代替选举由腐败的少数人任命。
