DEMOCRACY

Democracy has it is popularly known and define by the former American president Abraham Lincoln has the ‘government of the people by the people and for the people”, democracy not only ends upon this definition but extends in hand to some more factual definition which i will have to define and make analysis on as you continue reading, before i move to the normal and of course what i called the  factual definition of democracy i will quickly love to analyse what the tenet of the Lincoln definition  is trying to decipher :

 
Government of the people : this simply means that the government is  elected to be solemnly responsible for the people  inhabiting a particular state or society, as what he meant by of the  people is that irrespective of anyone’s gender the government is always at their side to protect the society from both internal attack or external attack in form of  civil war { internal } and economically insecure or bad blood with the people of the international  world as the external.
 
By the people : democratic rule is base on government  which the people of that particular society popularly recognize, popular sovereignty which is also the political  sovereignty is the right and  power of every citizen to vote in his/her choice of leader during election, government of the people  in the shortest form of understanding is that the government to govern a particular country is to acquire legitimacy and  authority through the normal voting and electoral process of which brings popular recognition  of a particular leader in a democratic state.
 
For the people : in this case we can say that this part is talking about how or to what degree the government is created for the people, the people in a democratic state wants there voice to be heard by government through opinion polls, referendum,  plebiscite and other electronic platforms like Radio and Television.  The third part strengthen more the government responsibility to the citizen after the popular recognition had already taken place, the government are solemnly responsible for good road, pipe borne water and the likes of many other things that can  help the society.
 
Factual Definitions Of Democracy
 
Democracy has changed and as being reviewed over times, democracy is a system of government where by people choose their representative through direct or indirect election.
 
Democracy can also be define as the government of the majority and minority right, the essence of this is that most federal state are democratic in nature and most times could have the coming together of both the  majority group and minority right of which might want to lead to the domination of one state on other  but with democracy the credibility standard depend how working hard you are to reduce the majority  and minority right
 
Types Of Democracy
 
Direct Democracy : This is an old and ancient form of democracy which which is practiced in the the Greek lands, it an ideology whereby people come together to a town square to debate issues concerning the society.  N.B  only the heads of the family are present in the town square to debate on issue, this means the mothers and children might have told their parent what and what they want to legislate or converse  on in the town square.
Indirect democracy : this is the modern day system whereby people elect their leaders to covers on behalf of them and find a better means of solution, it is an act of getting representative to man a seat.
