"Democracy is the most valued and also the vaguest of political terms in the modern world…The ancient Greek word “Democracy” means rule by the demos which can be translated as either rule by “the people” or by “the mob”, depending upon one’s ideological preference. By itself, democracy means little more than that, in some undefined sense, political power is ultimately in the hands of the whole adult population…..” (Robertson 1986, p.8)
