Democracy

Democracy (δημοκρατία, dēmokratiā, from dēmos 'people' and kratos 'rule') refers to two forms of government: The most common form in which the people have the authority to choose their governing legislators and the original form in which the people have the authority to decide on legislation. The decisions on who is considered part of the people and how authority is shared among or delegated by the people have changed over time and at different speeds in different countries, but they have included more and more of the inhabitants of all countries. Cornerstones of Democracy include freedom of assembly and speech, inclusiveness and equality, membership, consent, voting, right to life and minority rights.
