  • We have taken up power-sharing as the spirit of democracy and discussed how power sharing between governments and social groups is necessary in a democracy.
  • We saw how democracy cannot be the brute rule of the majority and how respect for minority voices is necessary for democracy
  • Our discussion of democracy has gone beyond the government and its activities. We discussed how eliminating discrimination based on caste, religion and gender is important in a democracy.

  • Finally, we have had some discussion about some outcomes that one can expect from a democracy.
  • In doing so, we have not gone against the definition of democracy offered last year. We began then with a definition of what is the minimum a country must have to be called a democracy.
  • In the course of our discussion we moved to the set of desirable conditions that a democracy should have. We have moved from the definition of democracy to the description of a good democracy
  • How do we define a good democracy? What are its features? Which are the features a democracy must have to be called a good democracy? And what must not take place in a democracy if it is a good democracy ? You decide that.
