Democracy, finding light at the end of the tunnel.

By definition, democracy can be defined as a state governed by the whole population or all the eligible members of the state, typically through elected representatives.
Democracy is indeed a system of rule based mostly upon a government of the individuals, by the individuals and for the individuals day.
Democracy is vital because it protects the interests and demands of minority teams, and every one of those teams have access to the form of government. In democracy minorities area unit free from discrimination and their views area unit as necessary as majority views.
Democracy is additionally a very important issue of dominant government power and prevents the folks that hold power abusing it and mistreatment it for his or her own gain instead of for the people’s. this is often drained a democratic state by having elections and holding those in power in charge of what they need done. Elections don't solely facilitate to carry a government responsible however conjointly they let the individuals participate and have their say within the political method. The individuals in a very democratic system are ready to influence government selections by connection political parties, connection pressure teams, participating in protests and plenty of different ways that.
There may be some countries within the world wherever democracy has not been embraced probably because of corrupt governments or maybe spiritual beliefs stop everyone in society having liberty and freedom to specific their thoughts. In USA and far of Europe and plenty of economically developed countries democracy has established itself, but in some Hindu states the people’s lives area unit ruled by the teachings of Saints and therefore the sacred text like the Bhagavad Gita and therefore the governments of the countries see it as their duty to administer people’s principles of the sacred text. There may be some folks that suppose that democracy will curtail higher cognitive process probably once a fast call must be created.
Overall I feel that democracy is a very necessary a part of political systems within the trendy age and it provides individuals the power to participate and to be free. whether or not direct or representative democracy is employed in a very government it still provides individuals these opportunities and makes the system truthful for everyone.

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

Global Ethics Weekly: The Right to Science, with Helle Porsdam
