I am not talking about a modern day version of a democracy, nor about democrats or republican. The Democracy that I'll be talking about will be A Grecian Democracy, based on a similar version of Democritus' ideals. To begin a Ancient Grecian Democracy is when there is a council that makes, interprets, and defines the laws, the laws are decided by the people instead of the council, but before it is set in motion the King (Yes there would be a royal family) would have to approve, whether it will help or not help, although it can be overridden by the council, it is not a Constitutional Republic Like the US, it would be a mix of a Constitutional Republic and a Parliamentary Monarchy (Except with the Monarch with more power), in my ideals a regular democracy, Grecian that is, is much more effective than a Republic
