Freedom of expression
The voice of uninformed people is worth the same as that of informed ones
equal rights for all
Every opinion, no matter how absurd, is heard.
Separation of powers
Capitalist state system
Only in a democracy can you develop freely, because the state is not interested in what religion, gender, etc. you have.
Inefficient decision-making processes
Democracy also guarantees minority rights!
Democracy makes change slow, because everyone has to have a say. A so-called strong man can decide everything alone and quickly....
Every person can make a difference by casting a vote. Every responsible citizen has the opportunity to help shape the future of the country.
That the masses are of one opinion does not mean that they are right
Other forms of government in history have rarely brought good. Ex. dictators, tyrants ect.
No opinion of his own -- if, then only superficial views on superficial, stupid topics
Everything except democracy carries the danger of arbitrariness by an individual.
Protest voters give power to dangerous right-wing parties that harm the country.
State power emanates from the people
Right parties are allowed...
free democracy increases demand for factual information
Hardly any long-term solutions. Thinking mainly in terms of legislative periods, so that sensible ideas that support the future are disregarded.
Democracy is based on the exchange of opinions and discussions, so many views can be heard and considered.
It is predominantly mandate politics (voter catching), instead of striving for the big picture and good for the state and citizens.
In democracy, the powerful are controlled by the people. In dictatorship, it is the other way around.
Party constraints do not make free mandates quite as free as they should be. In reality, members of parliament are not only bound by their knowledge and conscience.
Only democracy guarantees freedom and human rights.
Minorities are ignored...
Free life without fear
the fact that everyone can have a say can also have disadvantages, e.g. in the case of discriminatory opinions that many hold but which are nevertheless not correct
People "learn" to bear decisions made by majority.
Lengthy decision-making processes that are partly based on old facts or that the implementation does not adapt to the new state of affairs
Orderly transfer of power according to predetermined time periods
Voters can be influenced by the media, so that votes are cast tactically rather than on the basis of content, in order to secure power for individual parties
One can, within the laws in force, live as one wishes.
Democracy is difficult and exhausting. Every good citizen should deal with the contents of the voters before an election (and vote!!!)....
Through democracy, every citizen can influence the political decision-making process and decide for themselves. As a result, the decision has a higher
Not everyone can bring up a new topic, you have to agree on what is most important.
Everyone, no matter from which social class he comes, can have a say & has the chance for a FREE life
Freedom of expression, human rights, equality before the court INDEPENDENT of democracy. What is important is the rule of law that guarantees these rights.
For the normal citizen, there is no better form of government. Everything else is a matter of luck!
The citizen's opportunity to participate is limited to the election of a member of parliament; the interests of the people may be ignored.
Mutual control of the powers is to ensure compliance with the (outstanding) Basic Law or Constitution.
Opinions are often not accepted...
Whoever wants a dictatorship should live in a country with a dictatorship. Then he would see what that means and how good we have it with democracy.
Left parties are allowed
well ,,educated" Deputies can make good decisions for the people.
You can freely express your opinion, but still you can only choose parties that compare the opinion of the party with his and thus choose a party.
Can be infiltrated by lobbying and greed for money
political leadership can be newly elected
Infiltration by extremists, right, left possible...
Everything is bound by law. No one can just decide something like that and citizens can also testify against the state in court, thanks to neutral courts.
Some people see them as very understandable, and feel ignored
Man is designed to be a person. He can realize this only in freedom.
In the case of a grand coalition, there is a lack of criticism from an opposition, the basis of democracy is thus invalidated
Protection against abuse of power
the process of will formation becomes important
Minorities are heard when there is political interest in doing so....
Representative democracy reduces the real influence of the people
you can say something without being spat at directly
Expertise is not mandatory to be elected to political office
Ability to learn, you learn from past mistakes
Legislative periods can be enormously prolonged, thus preventing a breath of fresh air
Active and passive voting rights
there is no democracy and everything is run by lobbyists and media that belong to politicians and influence people...
