Policy or Democracy?

Why is it important?

First, let’s define policy and democracy and later delve into why they are important to discuss.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, policy is a deliberate system of guidelines to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes. A policy is a statement of intent and is implemented as a procedure or protocol. Policies are generally adopted by a governance body within an organization. Policies can assist in both subjective and objective decision making.

According to Merriam-Webster in the conceptual manner as it pertains to voting: The United States is both a democracy and a republic. Democracies and republics are both forms of government in which supreme power resides in the citizens. The word republic refers specifically to a government in which those citizens elect representatives who govern according to the law. The word democracy can refer to this same kind of representational government, or it can refer instead to what is also called direct democracy, in which the citizens themselves participate in the act of governing directly.
