What does it mean to be a good citizen?
Democracy can only survive (and thrive) if we are all good citizens. We tend to think that Democracy is something good for us because it can bring prosperity to us. And indeed she has brought a lot of goodies to most of us. But we have also think what we can do to make the fruits of democracy reach everyone, not only themselves. Democracy needs responsible citizens who respect the opinion of fellow citizens and requires citizens who will try to understand the people with different opinions. Democracy is a system that may move slowly (sometimes…) but the duality of the results it brings to the society is of such high volume that guarantee (with high probability…) the progress of the entire society. Democracy also depends on truth, and facts, and education and community spirit, and people (and their representatives) who care about each other. Let’s talk more about what we can all do to make Democracy happy!
