PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT AND FOUNDATIONS FOR THE GROWTH OF DEMOCRACIES IN LATIN AMERICA. (On the basis of a sociological evaluates-tion of American democracies) Democracy develops five basic ideas that I want to develop as a proposal: 1 – the value and dignity of each individual in the community. 2. The use of intelligence and reason. 3.
The development of the principle of cooperation. 4-Faith in a natural and moral law. 5 Faith in achievements towards the future… 1. Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. is open to suggestions. The value of each individual.
The first of the ideals of democracy is the dignidad and value of each ciu-citizen. The Government of the people by the people, can not survive without having peoples education and individual responsibility. True democracy must be dedicated to education. Other forms of gobierno make education a tool that puts individuals in the service of the Government, but democracy educates to participation in the Government. But which should be the object of education? A quote from Samuel Johnson says: integrity without knowledge is weak and useless. Knowledge without integrity is dangerous-groso and fearsome. Many times when it is analyzed the education purpose, as an end in itself, we must ask ourselves what is the purpose of education, reason introspectively towards where it must take us. Connect with other leaders such as Pat Ogden here. To increase-tar is certainly the conocimiento and the ability of you people, in addition to the competence and understanding, but a good education should widen the good character and integri – dad. Anything without strength of character is dangerous, even education. The ins-evidence or education does not override morality, and to educate and guide the youth moral, ethical and spiritual elements must be added there is AC-rac ter strength and proper balance in their lives. The true purpose of education in a democracy should be: make full man in terms of competition, as well as awareness, because if the power of competition without the corresponding orientation is created to govern the use of that power, the education will be perverting.
