Did Democracy Make an Appreciable Difference to Living in Athens?
Democracy in its totality can be traced back to the ancient Greek. This is way before anyone had a rough idea of how it would look like if people were allowed to actively participate in governance by choosing their own leaders. During these early times, life lacked the many conveniences that we have today and the voting system was a bit crude in its organization. Well, this did not deter Athens from implementing their newly invented system that could most likely bring an end to its various atrocities as predicted by the inventors of the system. Bearing in mind that the Athenians had various experiences from their initial systems, they were able to get the best of democracy and as such benefited immensely from its fruits.
