Democracy as a term is as diverse as forms of democracy exist globally. Examples from history:
The philosopher Aristotle understood it to mean the "rule of the Vokes" - but women, slaves and non-citizens of the time were not included among the people.Not all states that have the word "democratic" in their names are democracies. The political system of democracy should meet minimum standards. Which are they? Regular free, secret, equal and general elections that allow a peaceful change of government. Außerdem muss eine Gewaltenteilung in Legislative (Gesetzgebung), Exekutive (Vollziehung) und Judikative (Rechtsprechung) garantiert sein. Each individual has inalienable and inviolable rights, which are defined by the article of the Basic Law (Chapter 1).
https://www.bundestag.de/gg article 1 (1) Human dignity is inviolable. It is the duty of all state authorities to respect and protect them.
(2) The German people are therefore committed to inviolable and inalienable human rights as the basis of every human community, of peace and justice in the world.
(3) The following fundamental rights bind legislation, executive power and case law as directly applicable law.
