America does not have a true democratic system

Evil is only defined in your prospective.
Back to the political discussion, if humans didn't have this "evil" ambition, America wouldn't have a huge economy. Actually, who knows that Europeans would've came to America? This "evil" gives humans a sense of ambition to better their conditions, or if they are in a powerful political role, it ["evil"] gives them ambition to stay in that role.
As for the political systems; democracy has its flaws, communism certainly has its flaws, fascism has its flaws, the current US system (a mix between every possible system, or thats how I see it as) certainly has its flaws. The problem is that, every system will be in violation of its people's rights. There is no system where everyone has the maximum amount of rights and everyone is satisfied with the wealth they have. It seems that humans have so much "evil" ambition, that they work so hard to gain more wealth or better circumstances that without this "evil" ambition, human society would be no where near what it has come to now. Humans may still be living as "cavemen". Who knows?
I hope that I gave you what you were looking for in a response
that's not necessarily true. name one presidential election in the 20th century that it was possible for a third party candidate to win. the media just wouldn't allow it.
though, i agree with you on that, i didn't mean to make it sound like i was trying to argue some metaphysical idea. i was only trying to argue that the bad feelings people feel towards the population as a whole ought to be directed to where the actual direction of human history comes from, the established order and the authoritarians who run it.
if there is one negative aspect of the population, it is apathy.
