Despite its inner contradictions and imperfections, democracy still remains an ancient guarantee that we live in a society, that we must respect each other, that we must listen and defend the vulnerable ones and protect our right of freedom, our right to live and love in this world, honoring the people who gave their lives to improve our present life (giving us beside the right of fighting tyrannies, arbitrariness, prejudice and ignorance). Democracy is our tool to protect society against individualism and contain the overflows of the economic and political powers and all that threats of abuse against those who had neither the luck nor the conditions to defend themselves. Democracy is our human triumph against our own power.
