Definition of democracy says that it is “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.” However I would say that this phrase is poor. Why? Because democracy is not just a system. It is the idea that the people can cooperate with each other for the better future. It is present in all patterns of our lives. From the early childhood when we vote what we want do do, play, through the primary school and high school where we choose our representatives to the school council. But even when we want to go out somewhere in a bigger group we discuss several ideas, compare them, debate to make a final decisions. The problem about populists is that they’re using the problems of the people – not to solve them, not to help their citizens. They do this to get in charge of the country and after that they do everything to stay in power – now matter what cost it brings. Our duty is to show people that there’s always an alternative, that if they have problems – they can come with them to their representatives. If they’re not satisfied with them then they shoul candidate. What I mean is that we need to make it possible for them. Because who knows better what need correction, improvement in our society, union than our own citizens?
