If we look back at the time,we will find that the foundations of democracy were built in the state of Athens.However,democracy, liberty and the freedom of speech were a privilege only men had,and particulary the Athenians.Women,children and slaves didnt have the right to express their opinion,the oportunity to vote or be voted.We realise that it wasnt a real democracy,but a gift only few people had.The same situation probably happens in EU.Although our political system is considered as a democratic and fair one,many people dont have the chance to choose their fate,either if it has to do with elections,or an economical decision.Somehow ,politicaly and economicaly stronger countries often threat without noticing,weaker countries with the threat of terminating their funding assist,or even publishing inaccurate predictions for their future.We even seperated in our minds the EU countries ,depend on their economical power,and now it is divided to ”North Europe” and ”South Europe”.So we still do the same mistake.Most of the protests that they take place in the EU are ending with a violent way.Now we give more attention to who is going to be in charge,rather than who is going to make the big change.This is not democracy.It is the same thing with the state of Athens.If it really was,all of them should have equal rights and the chance to speak freely.So we need to adapt a democratic system that will elevate the spirit of the whole Europe,with equal rights for everyone,the right to speak and protest peacefully,no matter their economical status,their sex,origin,political beliefs.
