the origin of the word emocracy if greek. -------------------------- emocracy? Democracy is indeed greek but i don't think that's what they were asking. Democracy originated before the turn of the 5th century.
The difference between greek democracy and our democracy is that they had rulers and conquering and battles and trades and stuff like that we dont we got a president and mayor and cops if we are bad and we have stores to buy stuff at and we have a school where we learn.
The basic features and limitations of Greek democracy included the women, slaves, and poor having no rights in any form. It was a direct democracy and only men who were land owners were allowed to vote.
Democracy - "Demo" or "Dem" means people in Greek and "Crat" means rule or ruler. Thus democracy means rule of the people. The word "democracy" (Greek: δημοκρατια) combines the elements dêmos (δῆμος, which means "people") and krátos (κράτος, which means "force" or "power").
