Many of us take democracy for granted. We assume it will always be there, no matter what we do.

In reality, democracy is the result of our collective practice.

  • Do you practice tolerance? How many friends with different beliefs or from different political parties do you have?

  • Do you practice diversity? How many friends from other cultures, races or classes do you have? Do you include them in your activities? Do you attend theirs? Have you visited their place of worship to support their ceremonies?

  • Do you practice equality? How do you treat those that are somehow under your authority; be it your children, young people, employees or students? Do you give them the same respect that you request for yourself? Do you value their ideas and contributions?

  • Do you practice freedom? Do you search for different viewpoints and more than one source of information before making a conclusion about a topic or situation? Do you only read blogs and books that already agree with you? Do you listen to people who are radicals, liberals or who present alternative views?

  • Do you take yourself seriously as an influencer and participant in the events that shape the world? Do you participate in promoting the things you care about? Do you participate in showing opposition for the things that you deem harmful for yourself and others?
