Is it important to live in a democracy?

Democracy has become a symbol of our century. The end of the Cold War was not only the victory of the most powerful actor on the current international arena - the United States of America but also signified the start of globalization. Exactly this war put end to the totalitarian political regime in USSR, overwhelmed obsolete values and made possible to spread democracy around the rest of the world. Despite some states tend to…Continue

There are three main types of political regimes in the world: totalitarianism, authoritarianism, and democracy. The last one is considered the best for obvious reasons: manifestation of individualism, protection of human rights, respect for constitutions, fair electoral systems where governments are formed for limited periods of time and almost always have opposition. But where would the human society be if democracy…Continue

Citizenship. It grants us rights and privileges. But it includes another dimension: responsibilities. So often the world citizen is preceded by an adjective – good. A young boy who helps elderly man across the street is "good citizen". Members of the Red Cross who help children with visual disabilities pride themselves in being " good citizens".
And so it is for us who are citizens of the global world? Global citizens? In 1623 the English poet John Donne referred to people as "rocks"…Continue

There are so many definitions of the word “Democracy”, that one can get lost. There are short, long, depended on history, different variations because of government’s types etc. Throughout this specter, I want to begin with a simple one – a citizen’s definition.
I asked my mother and some friends, who live in a democratic state, and I found pretty similar explanation of this word. For them, democracy is a possibility to speak out without a fear of being guilty; when you have a right…Continue

Although not all of us have a clue about what this word actually implies, we have doubtlessly heard it a thousand of times and used it in our own conversations or speeches. I am not an exception, and when I started to work on this essay and faced a need to elucidate the concept of democracy as clearly and amply as possible, I realized that it was not so easy. It appears to be a broad term and in somewhat…Continue

Artificial intelligence, driverless cars, a global 5G network, feared robotic overlords. Engineers, sociologists, thought leaders and you.
Think Google can tell apart 80,000 dogs faster than any human, but it still cannot tell you whether it is a picture of a dog on the wall or an actual dog.
Will artificial intelligence be able to replace humans entirely?

This essay deals with democracy and its importance to people who either live in it or not. The essay claims that democracy is not a natural human need and that people have different understandings of what it is and what it should be. To show the justification of this conclusion, I will do the following: at the beginning (in the first part), a brief insight will be given into democracy and how it stands in the world today, then (in the second part) I will give insight into how people perceive…Continue

To start with, a basic definition of the concept…Continue
