That's a great question. In direct democracy, Everyone is involved. They get to directly vote for what they want. In representative democracy, on the other hand, Only a few people are involved, and those people get to vote for what they want, and are chosen by the public
Who is involved in direct democracy? Who is involved in representative democracy?
welcome to our new night show! Tonight we hosting in greece, and getting questions from Thomas here.
Thomas, how the heck did you break this light
But, I didn't
umm... ok, next question
Direct democracy began in greek city-state Athens. Representative democracy is used in countries like Canada, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
Where did direct democracy begin? Where is representative democracy used today?
Thomas? Where are you? Ok, I guess I will finish off this craziness...
Well, Direct democracy was made when the citizens in Athens wanted to get what they wanted, so they developed direct democracy. Representative democracy is used today instead of Direct democracy because every single person in the country would have to be voting for every little decision made in that country, and it would take too long.
The question was, Why did direct democracy happen? Why is it best for representative democracy to be used today?
