Rory Stewart: Why Democracy Matters

If you are looking for a reason to believe in democracy, it’s worth watching Rory Stewart.

Stewart, who is a governance consultant and former MP in the UK, explains his key ideas:

“Democracy matters because it reflects an idea of equality and an idea of liberty.”

“It reflects an idea of dignity, the dignity of the individual, the idea that each individual should have an equal vote, an equal say, in the formation of their government.”

“I have not met, in Afghanistan, in even the most remote community, anybody who does not want a say in who governs them.”
