Democracy goes back to ancient Greece and was defined by Aristotle as the "rule of many." A government, by this definition, is democratic if all, or most, of the citizens take part in the government or make policy for the government. This is also known as participatory democracy. Some of the citizens are elected officials, some are appointed, and some do the voting. In Greece in the 4th Century BC, such a government developed. True democracy was possible then because of the Greek city-state, or polis, being small in size and small in population.
