Infographics are great for explaining difficult concepts. Here's a real tricky one: what's the difference between a democracy and a republic?
- Power rests in the people as a group
- Absolute rule of the majority: few protections for minority groups or opinions
- No limits on what the government can do
- Two Types:
- Direct Democracy: Citizens vote directly on laws
- Representative Democracy: citizens vote for representatives who vote on laws
- Power rests with individuals
- The power of the government is limited
- Power divided between three branches
- Representatives of each branch elected to limited terms
