Learn more about the origins of Democracy at the Great Courses Plus: http://bit.ly/Learn-About-Democracy This is a 3 minute video to introduce the most basic concepts of a Democracy. Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally—either directly or indirectly through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, religious, cultural, ethnic and racial equality, justice, liberty and fraternity.

Collaboration: - Storyboard: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B80QLbZggGszcEE2N19EcjRlLVk&usp=sharing Please help us make this video better by collaborating on the scrip and storyboard. We're really looking forward to your comments :) === Video Script: Scene 1 The word democracy comes from the Greek words of “démos” which means “people” and “krátos” which means “power” or “rule”, So democracy basically means “the rule of the people.” Scene 2 Democracy first started as a direct democracy, in Greek cities, notably Ancient Athens, where people came together to speak about their concerns and opinions, in front of rulers of the city state, and directly voted on new rules and laws. Here is considered as the birthplace of democracy . Scene 3 So, For the very first time, decisions were made by the people instead of rulers... but sadly, the ancient greeks did not see all people equally. Slaves, women, children and the people who did not have a land weren’t allowed to vote. This is what we call a “flawed” democracy today. Scene 4 After the Greeks lost their power and influence in the first century AD, their early forms of democracy were also fading away until the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, which prevented the King of England to do whatever he wanted and said that even the King had to follow the country’s rules and laws which were written in the constitution. Scene 5 Today, most democracies are indirect or representative which means that you can’t vote for a new law yourself, but you can vote for people who then become law makers and present your interests. But democracy isn’t just about voting; it’s about everything to protect the best interests of the people, no matter what is their race, gender, political opinion, or religion. These interests can be human rights, quality of life, infrastructure and many more. Scene 6 Modern democracies divide powers into three different branches : the legislative (the people who make law), the executive (the people who make sure that you obey the law), and the judiciary (who judge you if you commit a crime). These three are independent and work following the process « checks and balances » which means all the work must be clear and fair. And, very important, the people who have power also must follow the law and not exceed their authority. Scene 7 In addition, a democratic government must work in a way that reflects the wish /feeling/desire and values of the society that it governs—this is also known as the « General Will », which is a concept developed by the famous Swiss philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Scene 8 One of the problems of democratic voting is that the biggest groups of people always have the most power and that’s why a good democracy also has laws to protect the rights of its smaller and weaker groups. A democracy where the majority chooses to separate, set apart, expel or injure its minority is not a functioning democracy! Scene 9 So, with those mentioned above, what do you think now about democracy? Winston Churchill once said: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Do you agree? === with love your MinuteVideos team https://minutevideos.com/

So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

It threatens our planet through excessive consumption, distracts us with irrelevant advertising, leaves people hungry and without healthcare, and fuels unnecessary wars. Yet we’re also often keen to dismiss the ideas of its most famous and ambitious critic, Karl Marx. This isn’t very surprising. In practice, his political and economic ideas have been used to design disastrously planned economies and nasty dictatorships. Frankly, the remedies Marx proposed for the ills of the world now sound a bit demented. He thought we should abolish private property. People should not be allowed to own things. At certain moments one can sympathise. But it’s like wanting to ban gossip or forbid watching television. It’s going to war with human behaviour. And Marx believed the world would be put to rights by a dictatorship of the proletariat; which does not mean anything much today. Openly Marxist parties received a total of only 1,685 votes in the 2010 UK general election, out of the nearly 40 million ballots cast…” You can read more on this and many other topics on our blog TheBookofLife.org at this link: https://goo.gl/Rt3zri MORE SCHOOL OF LIFE Our website has classes, articles and products to help you think and grow: https://goo.gl/93tGtZ Watch more films on POLITICAL THEORY in our playlist: http://bit.ly/2dma0Sn Do you speak a different language to English?

This week Craig Benzine discuses bureaucracies. Bureaucracies tend to be associated with unintelligible rules and time-wasting procedures, but they play an important, though controversial, role in governing. From the FDA to the EPA, these agencies were established to help the government manage and carry out laws much more efficiently - to bring the rule making and enforcement closer to the experts. But the federal bureaucracy (which is part of the executive branch) has a lot of power and sometimes acts likes Congress in creating regulations and like the courts through administrative adjudications. It's all a bit problematic for that whole "separation of powers" thing. So we'll talk about that too, and the arguments for and against increased federal bureaucracy.

Public servants provide technical expertise for carrying out the wishes of the people as expressed through elected policymakers. In this course, we will explore the role of public service in a democratic republic. A democratic republic is a country that is both a republic and a democracy. Common definitions of the terms democracy and republic often overlap, suggesting that many democracies function as republics, and many republics operate on democratic principles. A republic is state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives. A democracy is a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. Public service is a politically neutral and responsive field of administration. Administration involves questions of how to get things done, while the politicians determined what things needed to be done in the first place. The ultimate purpose of a public servant is to sustain a democratic republic dedicated to the principle of ordered liberty.

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

In which John Green teaches you about founding father and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson is a somewhat controversial figure in American history, largely because he, like pretty much all humans, was a big bundle of contradictions. Jefferson was a slave-owner who couldn't decide if he liked slavery. He advocated for small government, but expanded federal power more than either of his presidential predecessor. He also idealized the independent farmer and demonized manufacturing, but put policies in place that would expand industrial production in the US. Controversy may ensue as we try to deviate a bit from the standard hagiography/slander story that usually told about old TJ. John explores Jefferson's election, his policies, and some of the new nation's (literally and figuratively) formative events that took place during Jefferson's presidency. In addition to all this, Napoleon drops in to sell Louisiana, John Marshall sets the course of the Supreme Court, and John Adams gets called a tiny tyrant.

In which John Green teaches you about the end of World History, and the end of the world as we know it, kind of. For the last hundred years or so, it seemed that one important ingredient for running an economically successful country was a western-style democratic government. All evidence pointed to the idea that capitalist representative democracies made for the best economic outcomes. It turns out that isn't the only way to succeed. In the last 40 years or so, authoritarian capitalism as it's practiced in places like China and Singapore has been working really, really well. John is going to look at these systems and talk about why they work, and he's even going to make a few predictions about the future. Also, thanks for watching this series.

Join Cory Doctorow, co-founder of the UK Open Rights Group, in discussing his dystopian vision of the growing conflict between free speech and the democratic principles of the Internet and the business aims of commercial media giants. Co-hosted by the New America Foundation's Open Technology Initiative, Public Knowledge and Copynight DC, Doctorow combines his perspective as an author, activist, co-editor of Boing Boing to outline the threats to a free and open Internet, speech, creativity and fair use, and innovation from boundless copyright protections. Looking forward, Doctorow's prediction is bleak: This means war. It is time to stop treating the industry's fight over copyright as a brush-war over creativity. The commercial media giants' business models and ambitions are increasingly incompatible with a free and open Internet, and hence a free and open society. Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger -- the co-editor of Boing Boing and the author of the bestselling Tor Teens/HarperCollins UK novel Little Brother.

We face enormous challenges: Global warming, scarcity of resources and social tensions will become existential threats if we do not get to solve them soon. Design as a solution-oriented and holistic principle can play a key role in shaping our world. Good design nowadays proves that budget restrictions, ethical principles, functional and logistical requirements can be combined to a solution that is in the interests of all. On our 3rd edition of the Democratic Design Day in Switzerland, we had a discussion around the process of Design and how it impacts not just the visual impact, but everyone and everything that is involved in the process of making it. In this video different speakers from the event wrap-up their take on how Design can be a part of the solution. Speaker: Carlota Perez (researcher, lecturer and consultant), Michell Zappa (futurist and founder of envisioning), Leif Huff (IDEO partner), Simon Widmer (Manager Circular Design, Ellen MacArthur Foundation) and Simona Scarpaleggia (CEO IKEA Switzerland).

Security Council meets to discuss the situation in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela during the 8472nd meeting. UN political chief Rosemary DiCarlo said much more remains to be done “to address the extremely urgent needs of the Venezuelan people” adding that the delivery of assistance is guided by “the principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence” and must be “free from political objectives and delivered on the basis of need.” Addressing the Security Council today (26 Feb), DiCarlo said Venezuela had witnessed an alarming escalation of tensions. She said violent incidents occurred at different points along the borders with Brazil and Colombia, as the Venezuelan security forces blocked the aid supplies coming into the country over the weekend. She noted that according to Colombian migration authorities, at least 285 individuals were injured on the Colombian side and the UN human rights office confirmed four deaths and 64 injuries on the Brazilian border. DiCarlo underscored that while the lack of official data is a serious challenge in assessing the situation, available information depicted a grim reality with the economy continuing to deteriorate, people dying of preventable causes and leaving the country in search of assistance. She emphasized that Venezuelan actors across the entire political spectrum have the responsibility to put the interests of the Venezuelan people at the centre of their actions at this most critical time. United States Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said the Maduro “regime” refused to allow humanitarian aid into the country which showed its true nature. He said armed gangs, thugs, and criminals released from prisons were mobilized to control the border and accused them of burning the assistance. Abrams called on the international community to support the Venezuelan people as they strive to reclaim their democracy by supporting Juan Guaidó in what he called his interim presidency. The Special Representative expressed concern over the safety of the opposition leader and called on the Council to ensure his safe return to Venezuela. He rejected claims that the delivery of humanitarian assistance was a political show and a cover for military intervention, adding that only the Venezuelan Government had used force. SOUNDBITE (English) Elliott Abrams, Special Representative for Venezuela, United States of America: “The cure to this misery and tyranny is a free, fair, and transparent election that embraces all sectors of society and all political parties. That, of course, includes Chavistas who’s party has been usurped, much like the country itself, by Maduro. We believe that both Guaidó supporters and Chavistas can rebuild their country together, can construct a newly prosperous and democratic Venezuela.” Abrams said now was the time to “strengthen our commitment to the brave Venezuelan people.” He called on the Security Council to join the US in “meeting the growing needs in Venezuela and the region” and to consider “what resources and tools they have to contribute to Venezuelan democracy and to pressure the illegitimate Maduro regime to peacefully step down.” He called on countries to sanction those who have been involved in the violence over the last weekend and “who are fattened by the spoils of the Maduro regime’s corruption.” Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said an operation was orchestrated this weekend to violate the sovereignty of his country, adding that the Venezuelan armed forces were able to contain it without using any kind of deadly force. He said the violence came from the Colombian side of the border and accused gangs there of burning the aid trucks. He added that the aid trucks were also carrying materials to be used by the opposition for barricades and to fabricate weapons, adding that the attempted coup had failed and the events on Saturday were the last chapter. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jorge Arreaza, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Venezuela: “Mr. Trump declared a humanitarian emergency in the south of the United States because he wants to build a racist wall. So, what would happen if Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua were to come up with a convoy and try to force through the southern border to get to the population in the southern United States where there is a humanitarian emergency saying that this is a humanitarian assistance effort? What would happen if they were to try to do that? Ask yourself that question. There is a lot of hypocrisy.” Arreaza called on the Security Council to pass a resolution rejecting the threat or use of force in Venezuela and to “rule that out as an option once and for all, because Mr. Trump. Mr. Pence, Mr. Bolton, Mr. Pompeo, Mr. Marco Rubio, Mr. Guaidó, Mr. Duke are putting this on the table.”

Tucker: The Democratic Party has come totally unmoored from anything resembling guiding principles. Under FDR, the party was distinguished by its support for working-class Americans and organized labor. But they could never unite around such groups today.

Miya Yoshitani, the Executive Director of Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN, a founding member of the Climate Justice Alliance) along with John Washington, Organizing Co-Director for Push Buffalo read a statement and demanded changes to the agenda in order to centered frontlines in a peoples plan for the Green New Deal, at a meeting organized by the The New Consensus. References to the historical Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing and the Principles of Working Together were referenced as principles to support the emerging process for democratically including those currently most impacted in the development of policy for the GND. The process for the GND policy development is going to demonstrate how successful we are in building grassroots power to pass a GND at all levels. We can not continue to develop policy from the top-down. Miya has a long history of working in the environmental justice movement. Miya was a participant in the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit in 1991, and was on the drafting committee of the original Principles of Environmental Justice, a defining document for the environmental justice movement. With tremendous gratitude to The Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) member groups California Environmental Justice Alliance, Gulf Coast Center for Law and Policy, Kentuckians for the CommonWealth, as well as powerful frontline allies such as the NDN Collective, Native Organizers Alliance, WeAct, El Puente Climate Action Network, and Peoples Action who supported the statement as it was presented. CJA believes that in order to effectively confront the climate crisis, we must transition our priorities from global systems of production and consumption that are energy intensive and fossil fuel dependent to more localized systems that are sustainable, resilient, regenerative, and just.

In which John Green teaches you where American politicians come from. In the beginning, soon after the US constitution was adopted, politics were pretty non-existent. George Washington was elected president with no opposition, everything was new and exciting, and everyone just got along. For several months. Then the contentious debate about the nature of the United States began, and it continues to this day. Washington and his lackey/handler Alexander Hamilton pursued an elitist program of federalism. They attempted to strengthen the central government, create a strong nation-state, and leave less of the governance to the states, They wanted to create debt, encourage manufacturing, and really modernize the new nation/ The opposition, creatively known as the anti-federalists, wanted to build some kind of agrarian pseudo-paradise where every (white) man could have his own farm, and live a free, self-reliant life. The founding father who epitomized this view was Thomas Jefferson. By the time Adams became president, the anti-federalists had gotten the memo about how alienating a name like anti-federalist can be. It's so much more appealing to voters if your party is for something rather than being defined by what you're against, you know? In any case, Jefferson and his acolytes changed their name to the Democratic-Republican Party, which covered a lot of bases, and proceeded to protest nearly everything Adams did. Lest you think this week is all boring politics,you'll be thrilled to hear this episode has a Whiskey Rebellion, a Quasi-War, anti-French sentiment, some controversial treaties, and something called the XYZ Affair, which sounds very exciting. Learn all about it this week with John Green. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Much of America's politics came from debates between democratic republican Thomas Jefferson and federalist Alexander Hamilton: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/alexander-hamilton While Jefferson would go on to become president, Hamilton heavily influenced President George Washington who set many American political ideals in his farewell address that Hamilton helped craft: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/washington-s-farewell-address Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Turn on the captions.

But there’s confusion about what they mean. These three words have also been weaponized. People often use these three words to attack and marginalize others. People misuse these three words. They conflate them with other words. For example, often people seamlessly interchange communism and totalitarianism, or capitalism and fascism, as if they mean the exact same thing. Alright, let’s look up the definition of capitalism and put that up on the screen. Capitalism: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market Ok, so let’s break this down. First of all, it says “economic system,” meaning a way resources get around and trade stuff. By private or corporate ownership...ok let’s just say private ownership of capital goods. Ok, what are capital goods? Goods used to make other goods. Alright...let’s go on. By investments...so basically folks trying to get rich that are determined by private decision, prices, production and distribution of goods determined by competition in a free market….ok let’s simplify that. Folks trying to get rich by competing with each other. Everything else is implied, isn’t it? If you are competing in a free market, there is no government stopping you when trying to make money. You are making decisions on prices, production, and distribution in order to make a profit, and you are competing with others for customers. This is capitalism. Socialism: a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. procedure or practice in accordance with this theory. (Ok well we don’t have to go over this definition, do we?) (in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism,characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles. So first, it’s a theory OR a system. Why is socialism considered a theory and capitalism not? Probably because it’s never been fully practiced. But it is another economic system. But instead of private or corporate ownership we are talking about the community as a whole as the owners. With capitalism, it’s about owning capital goods. But with socialism, it’s about owning the production, distribution, land, everything...and everyone owns that. The community as a whole makes economic decisions, not the individual. Based on that definition, have we ever had that? No, not really, not since farming became a thing at least. Now, that third definition is the historical definition of socialism, and often leads to even more confusion about what socialism actually means. Marxist theory? Yeah, socialism, even though it had origins throughout human history, was first articulated by two dudes named Karl Marx and . Get it? MARXist because it was named after him? To this day, Engels is still mad it’s called Marxism and not Engelism, by the way. Anyway, the two criticized capitalism and said it would eventually be overthrown by a new economic system, aka socialism, and eventually communism. Socialism was just a transition from capitalism to communism. Marx and Engels said socialism would consist of everybody owning the means of production, and that the workers would control and manage it.

With planning already underway for Singapore’s 50th anniversary celebrations to begin in early 2015, the country has much to celebrate since its independence from British rule. A prosperous island state, with a thriving cosmopolitanism, a vibrant ethnic diversity and economic success, Singapore commands an enormous presence in Asia and the Pacific. The ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) has dominated politics and maintained power ever since Singaporean independence. When Lee Hsien Loong became prime minister in 2004, some hoped that he would usher in much needed reforms to Singapore’s political system. However, increasingly, the government has been condemned for its intolerance of opposition and there have been criticisms over declining economic productivity and the need for educational reforms. The Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) is a liberal opposition group in Singaporean politics, with a focus on enhancing democratic principles and practices, strengthening justice and creating a society which values and embraces equal status and opportunities for all its citizens. With a focus on enhancing the economy through government deregulation, as well as social pluralism and diversity, and enhancing respect for human, civil and political rights, the SDP presents itself as a credible alternative to the PAP. Unlike previously, Singaporeans are beginning to resist the ruling PAP’s control. This has been possible with the use of the social media. The opposition has also been able to communicate directly with the electorate through the Internet instead of relying on the state-controlled media. With significantly improved general election results – it’s showing improved 14% in the 2011 poll – and a significantly expanding membership over the past 5 years, especially youth membership, the liberal democratic message is beginning to resonate with an increasing number of Singapore’s voters.

The current Maldivian education system does not include civic education as part of the school curriculum, resulting in limited knowledge and understanding among young people of human rights and democratic principles, as well as the role of democratic institutions, elections and political parties. In order to introduce civic education and increase civic participation among youth, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems works closely with local partner Transparency Maldives to host civic education camps for young people, ages 14-16, from around the country. The camp provides participants with a basic understanding of human rights and democratic principles over the course of six days. Additionally, a significant portion of the camps is dedicated to encouraging participants to plan their own civic action projects, which are implemented after the camp. This video is from the first democracy camp held in 2015 with 29 young people from across the country. The video captures participants’ experiences and demonstrates some of the activities carried out during the camp including meeting inspirational leaders and a visit to the Parliament.

Today, Craig is going to talk about political parties and their role in American politics. So, when most people think about political parties they associate them with the common ideologies of the voters and representatives within that party, but the goal of a party is NOT to influence policies. The role of political parties is much simpler: to win control of the government. So today, we’re going got talk about why we have political parties in the first place and then finish with the five functions they use in reaching that goal. It’s a lot to cover, so next week we’ll talk about what each political party stands for and how that has changed historically.

(Washington, D.C., Jan. 23, 2017) The League of Nations outlived its usefulness during the Hitler regime. After the War, the League was replaced by the United Nations. Now the United Nations has outlived its usefulness and must be replaced with a new international body, one comprised solely of those nations governed by democratic principles, devoted to genuine democracy, equality, and peaceful relations throughout the world. The United States should defund and withdraw form the United Nations and reconstitute the movement to achieve world peace for all in a new world body: The Covenant of Democratic Nations. The Covenant of Democratic Nations will review, re-ratify, amend, or nullify all acts and resolutions of the United nations and its agencies creating a new body of long-overdue, reformed, and updated international law. It is essential that we at least begin the discussion of whether or not the United Nations has lived up to the lofty principles upon which it was established and whether funding this institution is the best use of our taxpayer dollars.
