Rise of Democracy in the Present Day World

  1. 1. ? O The term Democracy comes from the Greek word “dēmokratía” meaning, "rule by the people" which was coined from “demos” meaning "people" and “Kratos” meaning “power“. Thus democracy is a form of government in which all people have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives.
  2. 2. Why we prefer democracy We felt that democracy is better because it  Promotes equality among citizens;  Enhances the dignity of the individual;  Improves the quality of decision making;  Provides a method to resolve conflicts; and  Allow room to correct mistakes.
  3. 3. In order to present before you the Mesopotamian model of democracy Thorkild Jacobson have studied the pre-Babylonian mesopotamia using sumerian myth, epic and historical records. Critics said that mesopotamian democracy has a limited meaning having power struggle between the primitive monarchs and the nobles. The common people had the status of pawn in the hands of armed personnel.
  4. 4. For our country INDIA historian dates back to 6th century BC as evidence of democratic rulers. They have shown co-existence of monarchs, rajas as well as varnas or ganas in the so said democratic patern. Scholar again differed over this aforesaid view . Some facts are revealed by going through Kautilyas, Arthasastra which includes injunctions on manipulating the noble leaders, yet it does not mention how to influence the mass of the citizens – a surprising omission if democratic bodies, not the aristocratic families, actively controlled the republican governments.

  6. 6. Pre-eighteenth century milestones  Rise of democratic parliaments in England and Scotland  The idea of the political party with factions took form in Britain around the time of the English Civil Wars of the 1640s and 1650s.  Simon de Montfort in 1265 introduced the idea that powerholders are responsible to an electorate  Renaissance humanism was a cultural movement in Europe beginning in central Italy (particularly Florence) in the last decades of the 14th century.  The humanist philosophers looked for secular principles on which society could be organized, as opposed to the concentration of political power in the hands of the Church  Norman Davies notes that Golden Liberty, the Nobles' Democracy (Rzeczpospolita Szlachecka) arose in the Kingdom of Poland and Polish- Lithuanian Commonwealth

  8. 8. While we talk about democratic moment in Libya we can go back up to the year 1969 where Colonel Gaddafy and his 12 fellow army officer steered, combined the completely overhauled Libyen political system and economy from then to early 2011 the politics of libya has been determined by Gaddafy who had been in power scince his coup against the king. Today the country is in the phase of assassination of Gaddafi on 20th oct,2011 at SIRTE Libya.

  10. 10. The freedom which we enjoy in our government extends also to our ordinary life. But one factor of liberty is to govern and be governed in turn. the popular principle of justice is to have equality according to number, not worth, and if this is the principle of justice prevailing, the multitude must of necessity be sovereign and the decision of the majority must be final and must constitute justice.Each of the citizens ought to have an
