Yes, you read it well, I wrote “supposed” because I’m wondering if our democratic systems are really democratic.
What’s a democracy? It’s supposed to be the government of the people, for the people, by the people. That’s to say, the people vote for the candidate they want to be their representant who should act first for the wellbeing of the people. So, most of the countries are democratic and we have to protect it by acting in our political systems. What I mean, is that if you don’t agree with your democratic system, if you’re not feeling listened, or if you are a victim of any violence, you should not be apart of the political system but take part in it. For example, by protesting in order to show your disagreement, or talking to someone about the violence you’re victim of.
So, as I wrote, democracies are supposed to respect human rights. For instance, in the country of human rights, France, there are many hidden police violence. Police officers are supposed to represent the state and the justice but how can they kill someone because of his colour skin at the same time? By way of illustration, Adama Traoré, a French man was killed by a police officer while he got arrested. At 24 years old, he tried to run away from a police control and died because of a ventral tackle done by a policeman as many other people.
Finally, there are more and more examples to illustrate that, as Churchill said, “democracy is a bad system, but it is the least bad of all systems”.
