Desert Island Scenario
Waverly Neufeld
Although a democratic government was decided to be the most efficient way to rule Cocoa Island, as it promotes equality and keeps the citizens active members of the island, there are a few disadvantages. Some include that democracy is very time consuming and it takes long period of time to finalize a decision. Also it is not very efficient as ballets have to counted and volunteers are needed for voting day. Sometimes islanders make the wrong choice but because majority rules the leader must follow through with the decision even though it is not beneficial for the island or the islanders.
