    This page is about the ideology that advocates for a political system based on voting. For the ideology of the US Democratic Party see Synclib.png Syncretic Liberalism, 3way.png Third Way or Soclib.png Social Liberalism.

    Democracy (Dem) is a non-quadrant ball used to represent democracy without any more adjectives. Dem believes that the people residing within a state all have the right to decide rules, policies, leaders, etc. based off what most people want. Dem is also not to be confused with Republicanismpix.png Republicanism.


    Dem.png Representative Democracy

    Representative democracy or indirect democracy is a form of government in which the people elect representatives who administer, establish and execute all the interests of the population. This is by far the most common variant, with almost all established democracies currently using it.

    Semidirect.png Semi-Direct Democracy SemiDirectDemocracy.png

    Semi-direct democracy is a variant of democracy that combines direct and representative democracy. In this system, the rulers are elected by the people, but the citizens maintain sovereignty through, for example: referendum, public consultation, popular initiative and revocation of the mandate. It is currently practiced in Switzerland, Liechtenstein and at the local level in most of the United States.

    Directdem.png Direct Democracy

    Direct democracy is a variant where the population is given full control over policy making rather then having to elect legislators like in a Representative Democracy. Historically practiced in Ancient Greece in the city of Athdem.png Athens, Jack.png Revolutionary France and the Soc.png Paris Commune, it is nowadays practiced in the autonomous region of Rojava.png Rojava and in Zapa.png Chiapas.

    DefDem.png Defensive Democracy

    Defensive democracy is a term referring to the collection of laws, delegated legislation, and court rulings which limit certain rights and freedoms in a democratic society in order to protect the existence of the state, its democratic character, institutions and human rights. The term describes a major conflict that may emerge in a democratic country between compliance with democratic values, particularly freedom of association and the right to be elected, and between preventing anti-democratic parties, groups and persons from abusing these principles.

    In certain democratic states there are additional special distinctions, supported by a notable section of the population, which justify the use of defensive democracy. However, the question of in what situations the use of defensive democracy is justified without this being considered excessive repression of civil rights is disputed. To some extent this can be argued to be a form of Authdem.png Authoritarian Democracy.

    Antiparty.png Non-Partisan Democracy

    Nonpartisan democracy, also known as a No-Party Democracy, is a system of representative government or organization such that universal and periodic elections take place without reference to political parties. Sometimes electioneering and even speaking about candidates may be discouraged, so as not to prejudice others' decisions or create a contentious atmosphere.

    DemOffice.png Demobureaucracy

    Demobureaucracy is a term referring to the hypothetical system where the right to be elected by the general public extends at least throughout the seniormost offices in public administration. The term may describe various processes whereby the administrative offices are generally elected from a pool of self or chief-executive-selected, but particularly chief-executive-selected candidates. To some extent, this can be argued to be what Woodrow Wilson was trying to talk about in this passage of an article he wrote:

    But to fear the creation of a domineering, illiberal officialism as a result of the studies I am here proposing is to miss altogether the principle upon which I wish most to insist. That principle is, that administration in the United States must be at all points sensitive to public opinion. A body of thoroughly trained officials serving during good behavior we must have in any case: that is a plain business necessity. But the apprehension that such a body will be anything un-American clears away the moment it is asked. What is to constitute good behavior? For that question obviously carries its own answer on its face. Steady, hearty allegiance to the policy of the government they serve will constitute good behavior. That policy will have no taint of officialism about it. It will not be the creation of permanent officials, but of statesmen whose responsibility to public opinion will be direct and inevitable. Bureaucracy can exist only where the whole service of the state is removed from the common political life of the people, its chiefs as well as its rank and file. Its motives, its objects, its policy, its standards, must be bureaucratic. It would be difficult to point out any examples of impudent exclusiveness and arbitrariness on the part of officials doing service under a chief of department who really served the people, as all our chiefs of departments must be made to do. It would be easy, on the other hand, to adduce other instances like that of the influence of Stein in Prussia, where the leadership of one statesman imbued with true public spirit transformed arrogant and perfunctory bureaux into public-spirited instruments of just government.

    DemocraticGlobalization.png Democratic Globalization

    Democratic Globalization is social movement which is aimed for the creation of a institutional system of global democracy. This social movement stems from the international theory of Cosmo.png cosmopolitanism. The stated purpose of democratic globalization by proponents is to make people around the world more united. This form of globalization differs from economic globalization, as some proponents of the anti-globalist movement do not necessarily disagree with these positions.

    Deliberative Democracy

    Deliberative democracy is a form of democracy in which deliberation is considered central to good legislation. It adopts elements of both consensus decision-making and majority rule. Deliberative democracy differs from traditional democratic theory in that authentic deliberation, not mere voting, is the primary source of legitimacy for the law. Deliberative democracy is closely related to consultative democracy, in which public consultation with citizens is central to democratic processes.

    DemCentral.png Democratic Centralism

    Democratic Centralism is a practice in which political decisions reached by voting processes are binding upon all members of the political party. It is mainly associated with Lenin.png Leninism, wherein the party's political vanguard of professional revolutionaries practized democratic centralism to elect leaders and officers, determine policy through free discussion, and decisively realize it through united action. Democratic centralism has also been practiced by social democratic and democratic socialist parties as well.

    Demtrans.png Democratic Transhumanism Librtrans.png

    Flag of Democratic Transhumanism

    Democratic Transhumanism, shortened to Demh+, is a Dem.png democratic, often Prgess.png culturally progressive, pro-technology ideology.

    Democratic Transhumanism believes that the concept of Transh.png Transhumanism would fit within a Lib.png liberal, Socdem.png social and/or radical democratic society, supporting equal access to human enhancement technologies in order to promote social equality and to prevent further divide between the socioeconomic classes.

    James Hughes has referred to "Techprog.png techno-progressivism" as another name for Democratic Transhumanism, but it can also refer to the support of both technological and social reform in general.


    In all contexts in which there's a debate, Dem will always suggest it to settle out with a vote. Sometimes in a comedic context, Dem might support a radical decision simply because there was a vote on it.
