First, it was limited when established by Cleisthenes in 5008 BCE to landowners (they had a personal stake in good government). When Ephialtes restored democracy in 460 BCE after the Oligarchs had made a comeback during the Persian War he expanded it with the full male populace voting in assembly on issued put to it. Then Pericles radicalised it with the Assembly making all decisions and the Council carrying them out between the fortnightly meetings.

In Athens the citizens met in fortnightly assembly and made decisions which the Council implemented between meetings. In the Us, the citizens elect congressmen, who meet in Washington, and follow partly lines which do not necessarily reflect the wishes of the citizens who elected them.
In Ancient Athens, they did not allow women and slaves to vote. But in the U.S, all the citizens (over 18 of course) have the right to vote. the democracy that we are provided in the USA is what's called representative Democracy. in Athens it was much less representative and considerably more hands-on... sort of "hey, let's just vote on that law" kinda thing.
The main goal of the Democratic Party is to bring up a new breed of democratic activists. This is aimed at promoting democracy in the country.

Power Sharing: Power sharing is the very spirit of democracy. A democratic rule involves sharing
power with those affected by its exercise, and who have to live with its effects. All communities,
social groups get their say in the governance. People have a right to be consulted on how they
are to be governed. A legitimate government is one where citizens, through participation, acquire
a stake in the system.
Power Sharing in India: India is a democratic country. People of India elect their representative
through direct franchise and representatives elect the government to make or amend rules &
regulations and to carry out day to day functioning of governance.
One basic principle of democracy is that people are the source of all political power. In a
democracy, people rule themselves through institutions of self-governance. In a good democratic
government, due respect is given to diverse groups and views that exist in a society. Everyone
has a voice in the shaping of public policies. Therefore, it follows that in a democracy political
Forms of power sharing power should be distributed among as many citizens as possible.
Forms of Power Sharing:
Power Sharing in Different Organs of Government:
Power is shared among different organs of government, such as the legislature, executive and
judiciary. Let us call this horizontal distribution of power because it allows different organs
of government placed at the same level to exercise different powers. Such a separation ensures
that none of the organs can exercise unlimited power. Each organ checks the others. This results
in a balance of power among various institutions. For example, ministers and government officials
exercise power, they are responsible to the Parliament or State Assemblies. Similarly, judges can
check the functioning of executive or laws made by the legislatures. This arrangement is called a
system of checks and balances.
Power Sharing at Different Levels:
Power can be shared among governments at different levels - a general government for the entire
country and governments at the provincial or regional level. Such a general government for the
entire country is usually called federal government. In India, we refer to it as the Central or Union
Government. The governments at the provincial or regional level are called by different
names in different countries. In India, we call them State Governments. State Governments and
Central Government have their distinct areas to exercise power. This is called federal division of
Power Sharing Among Social Groups:
Power may also be shared among different social groups, such as the religious and linguistic
groups. Indian constitution has provision for reservation of different communities like minorities,
OBCs, SC & ST and women. This is done to ensure their adequate representation in the
Power Sharing Among Various Pressure Groups:
Power sharing arrangements can also be seen in the way political parties, pressure groups and
movements control or influence those in power. In a democracy, the citizens must have freedom
to choose among various contenders for power. In contemporary democracies this takes the form
of competition among different parties. Such competition ensures that power does not remain in
one hand. In the long run power is shared among different political parties that represent different
ideologies and social groups. Sometimes this kind of sharing can be direct, when two or more
Finish Line & Beyondparties form an alliance to contest elections. If their alliance is elected, they form a coalition
government and thus share power. In a democracy, we find interest groups such as those of
traders, businessmen, industrialists, farmers and industrial workers. They also will have a share in
governmental power, either through participation in governmental committees or bringing
influence on the decision making process.

Yes it is.
In a democratic country like India, with its multi lingual and multi racial character, secularism is the best option. Under secularism, right to practice religious rituals by peoples from all religions is allowed to exercise without any obstacle or hindrance. Whereas in autocracy, right to religious practice is curtailed specially for the minority communities. Even in Government services, college, university admission, there is reservation for minority community candidates. There is no discrimination of any sort on religious grounds. In view of the above, secularism is vital for a democratic country.

As they say, "A direct democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner." I like that in a representative republic, you let some chosen by the most people go to the capital and do research on things, meet with other representatives, and decide your future based on the expertise that they get that simply is not available to all of us citizens. Of course, you can now also have your future decided by which representatives are paid by the Red Chinese, the labor unions and other non-American entities.
The United Kingdom is a Parliamentary Democracy with a Monarch as Head of State. The current Monarch is Queen Elizabeth the Second. Parliament is a body of elected Members. The party that elects the most Members forms the Government, and the leader of that party becomes the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister selects his cabinet from the elected Members of his party, and they are called Ministers, and they run various departments of the Government.
The other parties that did not win the election form the Loyal Opposition, and their job is to suggest reforms or ammedments to the bills of law brought forward by the Government party. Bills are debated and sent back for changes, after the First Reading. Committees discuss changes and forward the proposed bill to the House, where it is debated again and then voted on. At Third reading, a bill becomes law if a majority of Members vote in favour of it.
The duty of the Monarch is to be a watchful and prudent protector of the rights of the people. She is consulted on matters of national security and finance, but she does NOT intervene in the day to day running of the nation.
The term of a Government is limited by the number of years it may rule (up to 5 years) and the concept of "having the confidence of the House, and its members. A Government in the U.K. may fall on a "Vote Of Non-Confidence" which can happen if enough Opposition members vote against the Government party. This results in a General Election, where all the citizens over 18 can vote for the candidate of their choice in their local district. Voters vote by secret ballot and the results are known the following day, after the election.
The leader of the winning party visits the Monarch, and is invited to form the next Government.
