The feel of democracy

WHAT we are good at by nature is criticising each other, apparently because each person sees things differently. Criticisms, however constructive or destructive, can be interpreted as insulting if it lacks recommendations and suggestions. Nevertheless, criticisms are a crucial feature of a healthy democracy.
It is of utmost importance that the government be open to criticism when it comes to creating the feel of democracy. However, it is one thing to take criticism, and it is quite another to pay complete attention to criticisms that reflect some objective reality.
One of the taxing responsibilities assigned to the government by the people is to be on the relentless pursuit of a common goal, which is to bring the people closer to a high quality of life. Another important thing is not to let our disagreements block our ability to compromise on matters of public interest.
As Former US President John F Kennedy once eloquently said: “Geography has made us neighbours; history has made us friends; economy has made us partners; necessity has made us allies; and what unites us is far greater than what divides us.”
Our common ground should, therefore, be focused on our collective efforts to leave a better, safer and more prosperous democratic country to posterity. The more united we are, the more we will realise the true essence of democracy.
