Conclusions
The purpose of this study was to point out the weaknesses in current democratic
theories and provide a new definition and theory of democracy. I defined democracy as
a political procedure that allows the presence of political rights, civil liberties,
majoritarian voting mechanism as well as a system that permits the continuous
achievement of a more equal distribution of power. I added a dynamic attribute of
democracy, a more equal distribution of power, to the conventional definition of
democracy, political rights, civil liberties, and voting procedures. I argued that the
distribution of power among citizens of a given country would be dispersed over time
mainly because of the effect of continuous economic development and partly because of
the influences of the political process and external factors. I assumed that once
democratic transition is achieved, democratic development would continue to evolve
rather than merely stabilize. The continuous development of democracy would reach at
