WE MEDIA PART 1 - What is We Media and Democracy?

The Usual Definiton

Democracy is by far the most challenging form of government - both for politicians and for the people. The term democracy comes from the Greek language and means "rule by the (simple) people". The so-called "democracies" in classical antiquity (Athens and Rome) represent precursors of modern democracies. Like modern democracy, they were created as a reaction to a concentration and abuse of power by the rulers. Yet the theory of modern democracy was not formulated until the Age of Enlightment (17th/18th centuries), when philosophers defined the essential elements of democracy: separation of powers, basic civil rights / human rights, religious liberty and separation of church and state.

Chomsky said that democracy is not necessarily what we are lead to believe. We are the 'Bewildered heard' that are dictated to by the 'elite'. They some times give us an opportunity to vote to make us feel like we have a say!
