I don't think that Athenian is democracy because, because it didn't favor the people.

Con

The people didn't not have enough say when it came to this

Pro

democracy is the rule of the whole of the people. People involved with the voting process had to under go military training, this helped because they knew what was best for the people and the country

Ok, well shouldn't all the people have a say instead of just the people that government think wont go against what the government think this way the government is getting what they want.

Pro

The people of the government are elected by the people. So in a sense the people are voting for the rules and the laws that are coming into action. The people are making the decision on their own, the government doesnt elect the government, the people do.

Yes they may have let people vote for people they wanted, but they would scratch the name of the person they thought represented a threat to the government.
sidsoftball11

Pro

The would scratch the name of the man who was voted to not be helping the government. The Athenians would vote people in and out of the government.

Con

You're not for the people if you are voting people out just because the government says they are not helping. Yah, maybe every once and a while if a person really isn't doing anything or being helpful, but voting people out every year whats going to happen when all the people are going to be helpful then they are just going to through someone out for nothing.
sidsoftball11

Pro

The government is made up of the people. Everyone was voted into the government and can be voted out at any time. Its not just the people that aren't helping it could be anyone. It was a regular process, they were only voting people out for the best. Eventually everyone will voted out and replaced with someone new. Like I said it was what was best for the people.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm kind of annoyed at all these athenian democracy debates. But--onto the debate. Con basically concedes that people have voting rights in Athens, and therefore it is a democracy.
