We hear the word “democracy” almost every day when we watch the news or talk about politics. For most of the people it appears to be a universal tool for indicating progress and achievement, but this leads to a depreciation of such a complex term which is still hard to formulate.
The greatest minds wondered what is democracy and whether it is…Continue

Currently the most optimal political regime is democracy; democracy means the power of the people. Obviously, any liberal, defender of humans, humanist, everyone who considers himself a modern progressive person believes that it is good; the most important public problems should be solved by popular vote. If any country, for example, China, which has a developing industry and an expanding domestic market, does not…Continue

In the last election in Ghana, I stayed up all night glued to the television as ballot papers were counted and compiled. The excitement that heralded the announcement of the election result was palpable in my town and in every corner groups of people huddled together to discuss the possible outcome. When the results were finally announced, I was awed when I found out that the candidate I had cast my vote for was victorious. I paused to think about what had just happened; my single vote had…Continue

Democracy -- rule by the people -- is strongly tied to human flourishing. Rule by the people results in a myriad of different government structures, but the underlying principle remains fixed: the opportunity of the governed to participate in the selection and decision-making of the governing. No two democracies are identical, but they all possess some degree of participation. Many regard democratic governance as end point of the evolution of government. Case…Continue
