Notes On How Do We Assess Democracy's Outcomes? - CBSE Class 10 Civics
Democracy is preferred over dictatorship because it:
  • Promotes equality among citizens
  • Enhances the dignity of the individual
  • Improves the quality of decision-making
  • Provides a method to resolve conflicts
  • Allows room for correction

Democracy is followed differently across the world on the basis of their social situations, economic achievements and cultures.

Outcomes out of every democracy:
  • As a political outcome of democracy, we expect an accountable, responsive and legitimate government.
  • As an economic outcome, we expect that democracies produce economic growth and development, and reduce poverty and inequality.
  • As a social outcome, we expect democracy to accommodate the social diversity in a society, and provide dignity and freedom to all citizens.

Democracy is just a form of government; it can only create suitable conditions for us. As citizens, we have to take advantage of those conditions and achieve our goals.
