Government for the people by the people

Democracy literally means rule of the people and it upholds a belief in freedom and equality between people, or a system of government based on this belief, where power is either held by elected representatives or directly by the people themselves.

Whilst the idea of democracy is sound and its practice has helped steer most of the human race into civilisation, we are now sufficiently advanced to have transcended its simplicity. Because of the ways we have manipulated its interpretation, democracy is now nothing more than a bus for the morally corrupt to climb on and ride into self-gratification.
