A democrat respects each one’s right to freedom – freedom of thought, freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of movement etc. That is why anyone who does not respect the rights of his wife or husband is not a democrat. Hence, those people who take decisions about their families without involving their spouses are not democrats. A father who does not respect the rights of his children, of course, is not a democrat. Similarly, a teacher who does not respect the rights of his pupils or students is not a democrat. An employer who does not respect the rights of his employees is not a democrat. If they work so hard for him but he pays them very little and sometimes does not even pay them, he is not a democrat. The policeman, the soldier, the gerndarme, or the prison warder who fails to respect the rights of fellow citizens cannot call himself a democrat. That is why all those who violate the human rights of others, harass and squeeze money from others as bribe, are not democrats.
