Democracy and how it works

Democracy and how it works is a subject that is spoken of one way or the other by some, but far too few in this free society actually engage in Democracy were they should, that society requires a democratic approach to function and survive fail to take full advantage of what it has to offer and what the responsibilities of those that benefit by it and receive from it are. Democracy is not achieved by just name calling and engaging in any opposition to a particular proposal just because it comes from someone else rather than themselves. True democracy is gained by working together as one to achieve a common goal.

It is recognized however full democracy may present some opportunity for dissenting arguments, but one thing must prevail over all else, that is seeking a beneficial outcome for all. The lying and misrepresentations made by some to gain some sort of advantage is in the final analysis is a disservice even to them and does not serve true democracy.

{A question which must be asked of everyone is, what is it that a person really wants and how to achieve it}
Careful thought must be given to that question posed above making sure there are no selfish reasons for whatever answer anyone comes up with.

Complacency is certainly a major enemy to democracy, also a failure to communicate can be seen as a contributor to any misunderstandings that may occur. In order to achieve any common goal, a person most know what someone else thinks and feels to have the ability to gage in any endeavor and be truly free.
It can also be said that no one has any grounds for complaining, for any reason, if they do not express an opinion on any matter, in most cases that sharing of opinion is gained by voting on certain subjects, however, that does not preclude any verbal arguments made by some that represent a certain faction or group of people, those individuals that speak on others behalf are known as leaders, which being a leader doesn’t mean a certain individual is better than someone else, but for simplicity sake one person is elected to speak for others in that group, and because of that responsibility to speak on others behalf there must be a certainty they represent a consensus of the majority, keeping in mind the minority has rights to, which is a perfect example of why any decision should be based on benefiting everyone, if it doesn’t then it should not be considered in the first place.
Democracy relies on individuals and those that make certain arguments on the behalf of those they serve, by being fully competent and honest with their responsibilities, if they are not then they do not deserve to be in the position they fill. It is also the responsibility for all those that have a legal right to express their opinion through vote to do so.

Although there are many more aspects to democracy to consider the above opinion covers much that should be considered, which is keeping it plain and simple.
