The universal interpretation of a model democracy involves ideas that intend to promote equal voting rights for all, majority rule, and scrupulous elections. In fact, the very definition of a democracy is “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.” It should be implicit in this definition that such unified notions apply to all sectors of American society: educational, economical, political, and societal. Yet, judging from these factors, the U.S. has proven to be extremely deficient in the aspects of what a true democracy looks like and the benefits that ensue such governing. When examining America’s overtly corrupt and capitalist economy, it is visible that the market is overwhelmed with private, self-aggrandizing businesses, and owners. There is an utmost lack of collaboration, equity, and justice in the educational institutions and a similar situation in the workforce. This unremitting imbalance in American society can be answered with one simple call to action: democracy.
