Political Ideologies; Athenian Democracy

This week, instead of our usual #Todays3, we will look at political ideologies. The reason for this is there has been much confusion about these ideologies as of late. For instance, I have heard a number of people refer to Left-wing anti-fascist groups as fascist themselves, rather than authoritarian. Or communism being used as an umbrella for all socialism. Note, this series is aimed at clearing up any confusion and creating debate, I don’t subscribe to nor promote any of these concepts. Nor do I necessarily agree with the articles, but there is a valid reason they were picked.

 

Rather than look at democracy itself, we will delve into the world of one of its original forms; that of ancient Athens. Here is an outline of that system and some of the background as to why it came about;

Although we can recognise some of those practices in our modern world, there were some big differences;

And, finally, how did it reach its demise?
