Nope

Even educated people can make bad decisions, hence why Allaah has a set of laws for his creation. Watch democracies end up becoming brutal dictatorships, such as the UK & USA.
 
So why do democracies function so much better?
Democracies are bad for uneducated people or when the culture discourages critical thinking. The reason why the mayor and the politicians suck in Chicago, but still get constantly re-elected is because most of the people here think emotionally. Democracy is terrible in the African American community because the uneducated folks have control. The majority are vote for terrible policies that sound good.

So the issue isn't democracy; the issue is cultural norms and socio-cultural governance.
 
Democracy is just a fancy way of saying mob rule

Someone once said it's 4 wolves and 3 sheep voting on what's for dinner. The majority isn't always right, they can be wrong, very wrong, and if they can impose their unjust rules on the minority who doesn't condone or believe in their rules, then the entire society is ruined essentially.
