Is it essential that the citizen participates in a decision making process in a democracy?

This is very difficult sometimes because some people are apathetic and they feel the democratic process is too slow and they think the government doesnt realy listen and that they are not responsive to citizens.

    Then people who do not want to participate in the decision making do not value their freedom.

    Democracy sucks. We are a Republic. In a democracy the majority can use the government to enforce its will on the minority. That is TYRANNY and I do not support it!

    Yes. It’d be nice to live in a Democracy rather than a Republic though.

    Its essential that the people get the choice to be heard, but should not be required.

    I’ll go with Sound on this. I would add, however, that if by ‘participation’ you mean becoming familiar with the topics and decisions being made in government and voting accordingly to advance what you believe in, then yes. Far too many vote without adequate information on what it is they are actually endorsing in the event in my opinion.

    yes, it is.
