Morality is not about wrongful enforcement, but doing what is fair given your environment, so that you do not create a negative condition upon another individual, or put them in a negative condition. Morality is about making assurances so that all people can be prevented from Harm, Hindrance, Unfairness, or arbitrary restriction(meaning it is literally immoral to restrict ones liberties, given that a liberty does not cause any of the previous three). Morality is about using what is practical in a way that does not create wrong-doings on the people, and that what is practical is not always right. Leading from the last sentence, You regard Fascism as being practical, but I contend that it is absolutely immoral due to how it functions, regardless of how practical it may be perceived to be.
There are other ways in which I can introduce these reform policies, such as convincing various congress members and elected officials that these reforms would be extremely good, and are very valid to implement (Some being more immediately useful than others - such as Reforms 1, 2, 4 and 7).
A little off topic, I would like to point out that Communism in itself does not imply either fascism, democracy, or dictatorship, it can be either of those three. Communism in itself is purely an economic system. The whole point of democracy is that it serves as a guarantee that the people can pick the representative they want to govern them, with plenty of checks and balances in place. It prevents Politicians from Harming the very people they govern on a whim.
The problem with the Judge Dredd scenario is that no matter how justly He Judges, It is wrong for Dredd to have the kind of power he has, because he can still cause vast devastation to people on a whim. Governance should not be done based on one persons whims, but based on what is right.
Regardless of how humans are, or are perceived to be (on average), There is no justification to allow for any potential wrong-doings to be done to them.
Democracy gives people a chance to pick which person can represent them, Fascism on the other hand literally allows a single individual the ability to Harm everyone in society, which is Objectively wrong.
Besides that, Democracy can be reformed so that it is more functional, less dead-locked, vastly less corrupt, and with equal representation of all political candidates during elections. Here is a list of reforms I recommend to improve democracy:
Reform 1 (Equal Opportunity): All politicians that are a candidate for office should only run off an Equal amount off funds to fund their campaign. This prevents Politicians from out-campaigning other politicians, so that all politicians can get their message across equally, without an over-representation of A particular message from one single candidate.
Reform 2 (Equal Representation): No 'News' source should ever give unequal representation of candidates. The news is supposed to be an unbiased source that reports all of reality and occurrences as they happen. Leave political discussions regarding various politicians to talk shows, not news anchors.
Reform 3 (Democracy Tax): Create a small tax system that makes sure democracy can pay for itself, and that all politicians running for office can campaign with equal representation.
Reform 4 (Eliminate Corruption): No individual, or Corporation should be able to donate or 'give' money to any elected official, So that no person can bribe anyone in office. This is something that all politicians have to accept so that no politician can be paid off/bribed to implement a policy that a single individual wants them to implement.
Reform 5 (Democracy Tax): Create a small tax system that makes sure democracy can pay for itself, and that all politicians running for office can campaign with equal representation.
Reform 6 (Wages): Make the way politicians are paid based on their approval rating. If their approval rating is low, Their wage should exponentially decrease, If their approval rating is high, It should exponentially increase, but plateau at a certain point (Say,.. $200,000 for the highest paid politician) so that the is not unreasonably high. Politics stop becoming about money at this point.
Reform 7 (Congress, checks and balances reform): If congress approval rating is incredibly low, In order to prevent the grid-locking of politics, The Head of state should be able to bypass congress, and instead pass policies through the supreme/Constitutional court.
With all these reforms in place, Democracy begins to function exactly as it was supposed to. There would be a flourishing of politicians getting their message across. Rather than a two party system, It would evolve into a several-dozen party system with many choices of candidates to choose from.
