I don't believe in them. By this I don't mean that I don't support them, I actually believe that they are a fiction. Theocracy means, of course, rule by God. Now the governments that claim to be theocratic are ones that are typically run by religious clerics of some sort. I think that they are being too shy about claiming credit for who runs the government. That is because they do. So unless the clerics are claiming to be gods, they are not, in fact, at the helm of a theocracy. Thus, when I say I don't believe in theocracies, I mean that there is no such thing. If God showed up to run a nation, or the planet, then you have a theocracy. In the meantime you have a bunch of humans claiming that they are operating on God's orders.
