Democracy is an ideal situation.We shouldnt confude it on how people use it today.It comes from 2 words, Demos which means people in greek, and kratos or cratos, which means power again in greek. i.e. democracy is the situation where people hold the power.HOWEVER, it has some other parameters, i.e. classical education, knowlege of all the issues that are going around..etc..etc.Dont tell me everybody nowadays is really eduicated or with all this propaganda going around us that we know what exaclty is going around us.We believe more or less what they serve us. Whatever this thing we have nowadays it is not democrazy but a bad form of it.However it is better that some dictatorships. P.S. in ancient athens the whole amount of people Kratos would vote.Nowaydas we elect goverments with 40 or 50 percent of the total 60& of people that went to vote.ie 30% where are the others? i mean where is the people the take a decision, people dont care and that fits the system because nothing will change That is my opinion
