To me, democracy often means compromise between various groups of people and cultures. We don’t all think the same on everything and so it’s about trying to get along in a very basic sense. That’s what democracy means to me.
My subreddit Change My View tries to encourage that mentality.
Democracy, to me, is about ordinary people having control over their own destinies, both collectively and individually. It’s about real control over your own destiny and the world around you in coalition and collectively with other people.
It’s not just about feeling involved or feeling listened to. And it’s not about consultation. It’s about who controls what and who has the power.
