Re: Is the Federation a True Democracy? And How Did It Reach That Poin

I remember reading somewhere that the Federation was intended to be similar to the United Nations.

Each world has it's sovereignty.

Kirk: Your world is yours.

That being the case, then each world would have it's own political systems for electing or choosing representatives for the Federation Council.

This means one Government/Planet/Member, one vote, with founding members possibly having veto power.

Starfleet would then take on the roles of both exploration and peacekeeping, similar to the peacekeeping forces the UN currently has.
