Evaluate the role the democratic structures play in society
Democracy and freedom are the central values of American society. But they've come to mean so many different things that they're almost meaningless. We find them being used to support the most anti-democratic policies. [ As mere propaganda slogans, they're utilized by individuals and pressure groups to lend a halo of "Americanism" to their own private conquest of an ever larger share of the
people's power. The social power analysis described in this essay provides solid, objective, social-scientific definitions of these badly-mauled terms - definitions against which to measure the propaganda of groups from the National Association of Manufacturers to the Communist Party. The most important function of a new social theory is to provide a rationale and intellectual and moral sanction to what people are already doing - or what they want to do yet don't quite know how because it is at variance with traditional theories and institutions. This social power analysis is intended to serve that purpose for people who are concerned about the concentration and irresponsibility of power in our society. They will find it provides a framework of ideas within which they can create solutions consistent with democratic institutions and ideals. ]

Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. The role the democratic structures play in society is that it allows eligible citizens to participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination.

Critically evaluate how disrespectful or violent behaviour towards women affects the society at large
Weegy: Research shows the profound and long-term toll it takes on women’s health, on families and communities, and on society in general. [ The economic costs of criminal justice and service responses to the violence, and of health care and lost productivity, are also staggering.
