No i don't believe that Athenians democracy is right because a democracy is way more than just voting and the athenians did voting.

Con

by exiling a person, your taking away their equal rights. They strip away your rights and use fear to control you.

Pro

The people did not think that they were the part of the Athenien democracy. Its there rights to vote and if you get voted you must obey the laws.

Con

there were actually only 12% males that were actually allowed to vote rather than the rest of the people. the total population is 240,235 so out of that only 28,828 males are equal to vote.

But the people that voted were helping out Athiens by being in the military. The others that could not vote were not helping Atheins at all so they did not have the right to vote and probably didnt mind.
