Democratic System


 Link to the video

Ideas for the debate with Ross: Why is the concept of a democracy in crisis?

Democracy has always been in crisis: democracy is all about practicing the art of bearable dissatisfaction. In democratic societies, people often complain about their leaders and their institutions. The gap between the ideal democracy and the existing one cannot be solved.


When you ask  people to reflect on,  Do you really believe that you can influence politics?” many people in very well-established democracies don’t believe that their voice matters anymore. For example, the latest data for Greece and Italy is that only 15% of Greeks and 18% of Italians believe that their voice really matters.


Paradoxically, part of the problems of democracy is that today almost everybody claims his sympathy for the principle of self-government.
