Opinion | Dominating democracy – The Washington Post

In my Outlook essay, Nikolas Bowie used a popular argumentation tool today. He considers our national government to be a “democracy” (18 references), he contrasts the various forces that threaten or undermine it, which he considers “undemocratic”. and “anti-democracy”. Despite Mr. Bowie’s reference to “our democracy” and “national democracy”, the form of government the Constitution established was not a “democracy” but a republic. Indeed, the term democracy does not appear in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence. This is not a technical or linguistic difference. If the Constitution explicitly established a democracy, it would lose the support of one of its most fervent people, Alexander Hamilton. He observed in June 1778 say democracies, such as those used by the ancient Greeks, “never possessed a trait of good government. Their characteristic is tyranny. “
