Living Democracy

From Ethical Politics

Jump to: navigation, search

Living democracy is democracy understood as a way of life, not simply a structure of government; not something done to us or for us but democracy as the rewarding practice of engaged citizens; not a set system but a set of system values – inclusion, fairness and mutual accountability – infusing all arenas of public life, including but far beyond political life; not the burden a free people must bear but a rewarding way of living that meets deep human need for efficacy in community.
