Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This is a companion film for use with the film “Despotism”. It gives a short abstract treatment of the meaning of the word, “democracy”, showing that two of the historical conditions essential for the existence of democracy are a balanced economic distribution and an enlightened population, which in turn produce two of the abstract characteristics of democracy - shared respect and shared power.
