Slide 3: 

We are a Democracy. Democracy depends on our choice. Democracy is created when we decide to rule or govern ourselves. We organize to decide the functions of our government and how it is ruled. In other words we create a structure which we allow to govern—a structure that functions to govern us. Talcott Parsons would say that we are within a structure, and that structure is a system.

SYSTEM CHOICE STRUCTURE DEMOCRACY

Slide 16: 

Democracy is choice, is freedom—It is a system of institutions that we choose and perpetuate. Democracy allows us to assemble and choose our leaders and fates. But, it is also a model which Parsons theorizes we have created to function all on its own by meeting the needs of the societal structure. For better or worse, for the few and the masses, Democracy exist through our own need to function in a system. Democracy is that System.
