Lets time travel to Athens, Greece 5th century BC. we have to finish that history essay on direct-democracy.
Alright! Let's go!
Look we are at the Athens!
Lets go find the town hall to see the the voting of the new laws that are being made.
There are no Women going to vote, is there a reason for that?
Even though a direct democracy involved the people voting, Women and Children weren't allowed to vote.
They talk about going to Ancient Athens for their History Project.
Wait, isn't Direct Democracy a bad thing because people can make bad choices?
Er, Yes. That is an issue with Direct Democracy, if someone is a popular political figure and are very persuasive, that could greatly effect the government.
They arrive in Athens and are going to go look at the town hall.
The people create a petition that states what they want for their country, it also needs a certain amount of signatures to be able to happen.
So how are laws even made?
They talk about how Women aren't allowed to vote.
Personally, I think that Direct Democracy is the best type of government to have because it allows the people to have a word in basically everything. Let's head back and finish working on that project, alright?
They talk about one of the biggest cons of a Direct Democracy
