Article Summary   by:lebayy    
ª
 

Democracy has become a very exalted terms in the history of human thought about the new socio-political ideal. In this modern era, almost all the countries claiming to be adherent to understand democracy. as is known from studies of Amos J. Peaslee in 1950, the Constitution of 83 countries - who compared among countries, there are 74 countries whose constitution formally adhere to the principle of popular sovereignty (90%).


The term "democracy" comes from Ancient Greek expressed in ancient Athens in the 5th century BC. Countries are usually regarded as an early example of a system associated with the law of modern democracy. However, the meaning of this term has changed over time, and the modern definition has evolved since the 18th century, along with the development of the system of "democracy" in many countries.


The word "democracy" comes from two words: demos meaning people and kratos / cratein which means the government, so it can be interpreted as the government of the people, or the more we know as the government of the people, by the people and for the people. The concept of democracy becomes an individual keyword in the field of political science. It is to be fair, because democracy is currently touted as an indicator of a country's political development.

One of the pillars of democracy is the principle of trias politica a that divide the country's political power (executive, judicial and legislative) to be realized in three types of inter-state institutions freelance (independent) and be in the ranks who are parallel to each other. Alignment and independence of the three types of state institutions is necessary so that the three institutions of this country can watch each other and control each other based on the principle of checks and balances.


Democracy occupies a vital position in relation to the distribution of power within a country (usually based on the concept and principle of trias politica) with state power derived from the people should also be used for the welfare and prosperity of the people. Such principle of trias politica is becoming very important to be taken into account when the facts of history to record the power of government (executive) is so large it was not able to establish a just and civilized society, even the government absolute power often leads to violations of human rights.
