A Note About Democracy
Democratic thought and the implementation of it into our modern world has resulted in a process of debate, collaboration, compromise, but most of all, freedom. Democracies allow each citizen to voice their viewpoints and opinions to society, although this freedom does come with some consequences. In a democracy, debates and political disagreements can lead to conflict and without the proper safeguards in place, societies can implode from within.
