From time immemorial, scientists conducted experiments on animals. For example, in 1880, Louis Pasteur proved the microbial nature of certain diseases by artificially causing anthrax in a sheep. Ivan Pavlov used dogs to study conditioned reflexes in 1890. We know that toxicity tests were mandatory in the twentieth century. And these tests were also carried out on animals. But despite the experiments, there were people who tried to fight for animal rights. And by the beginning of the 21st…Continue

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…Continue

I never had the chance to live in a non-democratic society. Back in the 2010's election, my eight year old self would be found singing along to the rhythm of candidatorial advertisement jingles. If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…

A democracy has a functioning bureaucracy and views no one as above the…Continue

There are two forms of government that is Monarch and Democratic.
The difference between the two is that
1- In monarch you work under someone.
In democracy someone works according to your wish.
2- Leaders became generation wise.
Leaders are made according to the will of the citiens.
3- It is nearly impossible to remove the leaders.
Citizen don't vote to the bad leader and he or she can't win any election anymore.

Democracy is premised on the normative notion that all people are equal in terms of their political rights. This in turn stipulates that citizenship in a democracy confers on each person a set of enumerated rights and obligations that ultimately also shape a larger community of people imbued with shared values. It is this aspect of democracy that makes it the…Continue

All human history is permeated with the search for a political ideal. This search is based on social differentiation. It is the social stratification that motivates the search for a political ideal, and each stratum represents a political ideal in its own way. At the heart of this view, as social Sciences prove, are the personal interests of each social group, not the whole society. And the higher the social group takes a position in the social hierarchy, the more influential it…Continue

Though once called a perversion of constitutional government by Aristotle, democracy is now lauded by the United Nations as a universal core value. But the rise of Communist China onto the world stage as a fierce economic competitor and potential superpower, as well as the rise of the alt-right in stable democracies has scholars questioning if democracy is indeed the final form of government, or if it is merely an imperfect Western…Continue
