Does allowing populations

of Citizenry to


automatically qualify

a government as a legitimately

functioning Democracy?



A glance at the above map which

indicates Nations' and Countries'

claims  of   "Democracy"  

may put the world at

ease . . .

if it were only true.

In the early years of the

21st Century and new Millennium,

the world has witnessed more violence,

tyrannical rule, oppression and even

the open slaughter of thousands of

innocent Citizens at a point

in time when

"Sovereign Democracies"

should be flourishing in every corner of the

globe.  And not merely flourishing simply for

the sake of 'feigned democratic recognition',

but  rather flourishing and firmly rooted  for 

the furtherance of  "democratic  principles"

while diligently engaging in legitimate

efforts to effectively govern

for assurances of freedoms, human rights,

global sustainable development and the

overall well-being and prosperity of 

"ALL of Humanity!"

With those undeniable truths clearly


what does the future hold for

"Democracies Around the World?"

"At heart, democracy is about people.  It is built on inclusion, equal treatment and participation — and it is a fundamental building block for peace, sustainable development and human rights.

These values and aspirations cannot be seen as tokens or lip service.  They must be real in people’s lives.

Yet the International Day of Democracy takes place at a time when trust is low and anxiety is high.

People are frustrated by growing inequalities and unsettled by sweeping changes from globalization and technology. 

They see conflicts going unresolved, a climate emergency going unanswered, injustice going unaddressed, and civic space shrinking. 

As we mark Democracy Day, I urge all governments to respect the right to active, substantive and meaningful participation; and I salute all of you who strive tirelessly to make this happen."

António Guterres

What's YOUR



Whenever and in whatever place

‘Democracy’ exists, . . .

the legitimate and just functioning of

such  a form of governance must at  all

times ensure the freedoms, human rights, 

further sustainable development AND

tangible goal of achieving the overall

well-being and prosperity of

Humanity as a Whole!

Regarding "Democracies"

Around the World . . .

There's yet

"Much Work to be Done!"
