In antiquity the only democratic City-State was Greece. Great thinkers and sages were born in Greece with their ideals of beauty, philosophy, science and freedom (ancient Egypt had much influence over Greece with its initiatory knowledge). The other cities were governed by dictators, emperors, kings and tyrants. Today, with all of democratic Europe (a movement initiated by the French Revolution), which has influenced all the Americas, the Greek ideal of democracy reappears. But there are still undemocratic countries … One day, the entire world will be democratic … Democracy, a political ideal? Yes.
