Brittany Jacobs PSC 100 Assignment #1 Chapter 1: Question #1: What is your own background with democracy? (Have you had a government class in the past? Have you voted in recent elections?) What is your initial reaction to the term "democracy" (positive, negative, confused…)? I have taken a government class my junior year of high school, so I do not remember much. I generally do not like to get involved with politics so therefore I have never voted in recent elections. My initial reaction to the term “democracy” is confused because I am not sure that I have a clear understanding of what it exactly means. I know there is a political party called democrats, but I do not know what their beliefs are or what they do. Question #2: What is the main difference between "direct democracy" and "indirect democracy"? The main difference between “direct and indirect democracy” is that direct democracy is when eligible citizens discuss and decide policy through majority rule emerged in the town’s meeting. Indirect democracy is when the citizens elect representatives who decide policies on the behalf of the people (page 12 and 13).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
