Hey Abderus! Now that you are 18 and were born in the city of Athens, you can vote.
Isn't Athens government direct democracy?
Why was democracy created? Isn't there another form of democracy too?
Good question Abderus. Democracy was created because the citizens wanted to strip the power from the Aristocrats and have the decision making for themselves. The other from of democracy is representative.
Well, what is the difference between the two types of democracy?
Direct democracy is when citizens vote for vote for the decisions of their city state. Representative is when citizens elect representatives who vote on their behalf.
