Democracy is the political system most widely spread among Western countries. However, over recent years, the unstoppable rise of far right ideology in several European states emerges as a big concern regarding the vulnerability of freedom and human rights, often supported by the judiciary power. What are the pros and cons of Democracy? It is a truth universally acknowledged that if the Greeks had not discovered democracy, our world would not be as it is today. Although there are several types of democracy, when we refer to it we think mainly in representative democracy who involves a mechanism to elect people than serve in a chamber, commonly known as a parliament. There are some reasons why one might consider democracy a good political system. First is a certain sense of economy and efficiency in the fact that a few people represent the whole country. Second, in the cases of hard political decisions, the prospect of being able to organize referenda can help the whole system’s quality. Third, democracy implies freedom of speech and a strong commitment against oppression, corruption, racism, terror and crime. On the other side, there are some downsides to choosing democracy as a form of government. The first is the risk of representatives’ impunity when they seem to serve they own interests. Fundamental to a healthy democracy is a strong judiciary. The second downside is that promises made during the election campaign might not be kept afterwards. While there may well be elements of hope, freedom might not be guaranteed if the power of tribunals is not separated from the legislative and executive branches of the government. In order to keep away justice from heinous bias we need a deep reflection on the division of powers.
