Nice! But can you also tell me how was it different from a monarchy? theocracy? tyranny?
Direct Democracy was invented in the Greek city states mainly in the Athens.
Wow! But can you also tell me what 3 ways did the Greeks cast a vote?
Theocracy is a ruler or group that uses the power of god(s) and texts to create laws and guide government
Monarchy is political system based upon the undivided sovereignty or rule of a single person
Tyranny is a government that has a ruler with a lot of power.
Sorry for all the question but can you also tell me who was and wasn't allowed to vote?
Greeks vote with rocks,a lottery,and also go to a assembly to vote
Alright Last Question.How did Greek democracy influence United States government today?
Women,children,slaves and also people not from the Athens were not allowed to vote.
Thanks For All the answers.Now im going back to USA 2020 to ace my project.
The U.S. voting system had some similarities with that of Athens. In Athens, every citizen could speak his mind and vote at a large assembly that met to create laws.
