Myunderstandingofthetitle"TheStruggleforDemocracy"isthatdemocracyofthe
countryisnotgivenforfreethus,peopleconsistentlyhavetofightforanidealtypeof
government.Ialsocouldthinkdemocracywasdevelopingstepbystepbypeoples
continuoushardwork.Basedonthistitle,IwasabletothinkImightbelearningaboutU.S.
democracyhistoryandpeopleseffortforachievinghumanrightsfromthegovernment.When
wesaydemocracy,wealwaysthinkofruleofthemajority.Bythisrule,peopleelecttheir
representativesandactontheirbehalfandwishes.Wecallitrepresentativedemocracy
whichiscurrentU.S.governmentis.Becauseofthis,IthoughtImightlearnhowthe
