What makes it special? I think the people share in directing the activities of the state.

It is a system of government prone to a lot of problems like corruption, slow progress or vested interest politics etc. But in spite of all these problems it is still the best form of Governance possible. I shudder at the thought of a communist government or a dictatorship.

Democracy implies freedom. Not considering all the socio-cultural boundaries that chain a human being from his childhood, democracy gives a sense of freedom to an individual. That sense of freedom is what results in innovation, independence, and development, in any field. Also, it enables us to go beyond history and create our own new world, more advanced, and useful. All in all, democracy implies independence, freedom, and hence progress.
