India: Democracy or Feudocracy?

The political system of the Modern Age is democracy. The political system of the medieval period was feudalism.

Democracy
Feudalism
1. Objective of the system
Good of the people
Good of the rulers
2. Basis of the system
Professional organisations
Feudal lords with their own private wealth and private armies
3. Selection of system workers
Merit
Personal connection with a feudal lord

India's political system looks more like column 2 than like column 1. So India is not a democracy, but a feudocracy.

Soma, you have to look at any system in teems of social capital. There is a large component of social capital in merit unless your definition of merit is marks in an exam...
