Democracy In Ancient

Democracy was first started in
Athens, Greece,in the year of
594 B.C
There are two types of democracy:
Direct democracy and limited
Direct democracy is when all citizens
participated in government
However, not all people were citizens
Citizens were free people. In order to be a citizen, you had to be age 18 and over and both parents had to be free. They also had to attend all government meetings and had to be male. Their gatherings were discussed in a place called the agora.
Decisions were made by voting. The majority would have won.
In a direct democracy, wealth or social status did not matter at all.
The first officiated law was made by a man
named Draco. It was made to differentiate
planned murders from accidental killings.
Limited democracy is when the citizens would
elect a representative to make government
decisions for them.
Limited democracy is used in most of the world,
such as the United States
Just like in direct democracy, citizens were not
allowed to vote, including women and slaves.
