Basic Concepts of Democracy “No government demands so much from the citizen as Democracy, and none gives so much back.” – James Bryce (born May 10, 1838, Belfast, Ire.—died Jan. 22, 1922, Sidmouth, Devon, Eng.), British politician, diplomat, and historian best known for his highly successful ambassadorship to the United States (1907–13) and for his study of U.S. politics, The American Commonwealth, which remains a classic.

  6. Basic Concepts of Democracy “No government demands so much from the citizen as Democracy, and none gives so much back.” – James Bryce What is James Bryce saying? What does democratic government demand from you? What does it give you in return?

  7. Foundations of OUR Democracy • A recognition of the fundamental worth and dignity of EACH person. • A respect for the equality of ALL persons. • A faith in majority rule and an insistence upon minority rights. • An acceptance of the necessity of compromise and • An insistence upon the widest possible degree of individual freedom.

  8. Does this ring true today? “Must a government of necessity be too strong for the liberties of its own people, or too weak to maintain its own existence?” – Abraham Lincoln, Response to a Serenade, November 10, 1864 Is the United States struggling with this question today?
