look up any word, like blumpkin:

Democracy: from the Greek 'demos', people and 'kratos', power:

1: A system of government in which an entire national population is totally deprived of power by a few worthless bits of paper with Xs on them.

2: Totalitarianism with some eye-candy.
Democracy, you either hate it or loath it.

In a democracy, you get to vote for everything except whether or not you want to live in a democracy.

IBM is very democratic

A mob rule system of government. Inevitably fails.

Has major differences to a representative form of government.
In Democracy every man has a vote but does not work on large scales. Generally leads to chaos due to lack of organization and the pure anarchy due to the lack of rule of law.

In contrast, the federalized republic is a large scale Democratic system that is made up of many people's representatives elected by popular vote.

the ancient Greek City states (all of them)

A belief that your careless decision will be eventually covered up by other people.
With democracy, you don't have to hesitate!
