No, I think not. There are enough problems now to last us our lifetimes. With all the religious bickering, there would be civil war all over. Never happen here.
Theocracy cannot exist. No god is prepared to do even the smallest thing to prove his/her existence, so clearly cannot rule. You CAN have rule by those who "interpret" the "word of god" - although generally speaking that has never worked.
Rule by a religious brotherhood is just another oligarchy.
Definitely not. Religious law should never be imposed on a society.
Lets look at Saudi Arabia or Iran or Vatican City. Would you consider these theocracies viable govts? Viable, but absent basic freedoms. "History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government." -Thomas Jefferson
I certainly wouldn't choose to live under the yoke of a theocracy, though the evangelicals here in the US show intentions toward that end.
Yes ... As long as everyone there has volunteered to live under such a system. The Vatican is a pretty good example. Nobody has to live in Vatican City.
Lots of varying definitions of theocracy and viable out there. I'd say we would need to agree on which ones we are talking about.
