If we want to live in a democracy, we must practice it on a daily basis. Democracy must be a lifestyle, not a rare occurrence.Stefan Ivanovski, Lifestyle Democracy
Why Is It Important To Democratize Our Lifestyle?
1. Democracy is a work in progress. Democracy is about empowering individuals and communities without harming others. It took over 2,000 years since the Athenian democracy for women to have the right to vote. Let's not spend another 2,000 years to empower the disempowered.
2. Democracy requires regular practice. Just like going to the Olympic games once every 4 years does not make one an Olympic athlete, the same way one does not become a democratic citizen by voting once every 4 years. If we want to live in a democracy, we must practice it on a daily basis. Democracy must be a lifestyle, not a rare occurrence.
3. Democratization is a process without an end. Our understanding of democracy needs to adapt to the changes of the present. Let us discover the democracy of the future by learning from the trendsetters and practicing it today.
4. Democracy is a community effort. The same way it is easier to spend the good and bad times in life with friends, it is easier to ride the bumpy waves of democratization together. Let's work together as a community to build a better democracy!
