Lesson 1: Core Concepts of Democracy (Part One)

In this lesson, Robert Leming defines democracy and examines the core concepts of constitutional government within a democracy. He then discusses constitutionalism, focusing on the rule of law and limited government. He then analyzes the separation of powers and checks and balances in a democratic society, using the United States of America as an example. He concludes by discussing four areas in the context of representative government: popular sovereignty, representation and accountability in government, majority rule and respect for minority rights, and free and fair elections.
