According to the spanish Royal Spanish Academy (2018) , democracy has the meaning of “political doctrine according to which sovereignty resides in the people, who exercise power directly or through representatives”. But does it really happen in the countries that have that government system? At least in Latin America and particularly in Mexico it does not happen.
We are living in a system…Continue

The nature of democracy is quite simple. Only 5 words: the power of the people. But in fact, it turns out that its realization is quite problematic.

We are all born in equal conditions and no one has the right to belittle our rights and…Continue
