The Long and Complicated History of Democracy

My most recent post about the petition to have a Death Star built in America got me thinking about democracy, and all it's failings and all that's good about it. I then began to research the history of democracy, and found some very interesting things. I planned on writing a short summary on the history of democracy however upon research I felt that a short blog post would not do it justice, so instead I have found a really great website that I personally feel says it all. Please enjoy;
