Oooooohh democracy questions!!! I do love them!

Ok, first you need to think of ways it is democratic:
  • public elections
  • rule of the people
  • government supported human rights (i.e. opposite to a dictatorship)
  • laws put to vote

Those are just 3 examples, head is fried tonight so I can't think of more.

Then think of ways it isn't democratic:
  • not everyone votes so how can it be true democracy
  • government make most small decisions between themselves
  • public representatives don't always reach the people they need to


Then decide how democratic you think it is (but don't put you in it) using the arguments you've written.

How many pages does it have to be? What has your teacher said are your guidelines?

thanks alot! I'll get started on it today, and it doesnt really have a set limit, and no guidelines were talked about. However i think she wants me to talk about universal suffrage and one person one vote also!
