How important do you think democracy is? Do you think it was survive forever?
Democracy is important as long as people want freedom , secularity and want to live in a republic. In a democracy the leaders are responsible for their acts and are answerable to people unlike in monarchy. If you want to enjoy your life you should live in a democratic country. Monarchy is gross and too imposing.
I think democracy is important for a civilized society, but that doesn't mean it will survive forever, nor does it mean it is the most effective form of government for humans. Ancient civilizations, governed by kings and pharaohs, lasted longer than modern democracies. They may not have the moral high ground, but their reigns speak for themselves. Were modern governments wiped out tomorrow, there is no guarantee that what springs up in their place will be fair or democratic.
what best mind, good idea and perfect described for explain what a think democracy is?. Many country to claim a real democracy nation-state. Freewill, free speak, representative, equality, egality, humanity and more value of freedom is not only for democracy is. But for any system too, i think. For any reason, maybe a democracy is a ideal model for keeping that values.
I always feel as though democracy isnt as able to be long lasting. Feudalism seems to be much stronger. Freedoms are not necessarily a result of democracy as 'best for most' or 'for the greater good' style thinking doesnt equal freedom. Democracy itself doesnt neccessitate equality in itself. A single ruler could be more generous and kind that the powers we would selfishly vote for. I dont know if I believe that democracy can actually work fairly in all honesty. Its fine for now but it cannot be the best... Surely.

I ask this question because I feel a sense of dilemma. I hate extremism in general and religious extremism in particular. I am not sure exactly what the policies of the Muslim Brotherhood government are, but the idea of any government associated so directly with religion worries me greatly -...

I believe that, ultimately, Democracy is a gift we continually give OURSELVES. But, as a society, a nation, are we ACCEPTING and USING it?

Our Presidential Inauguration event is symbolic of our Democratic process. In this case, the peaceful transfer of power. Even as an event that highlights Donald Trump as our new president, I do not think it is a celebration of the new president. It is a symbolic testament to the strength of our...

Why does the definition of a democracy and republic matter?I know the basic difference between a democracy and a republic - so the question is: Why does it matter? Why do some people feel that it is important to point out that most Americans believe that they live in a democracy - whereas, most...
