Solution

In a democracy, all individuals are considered free, equal and autonomous. All individuals are supposed to have equal standing. This means that each individual is equal before the law, has the same right to vote as other individuals, the same right to express oneself, and the same potential to influence government decisions.

Equality cannot exist when people are treated unfairly. Everyone’s opinion matters and deserves to be heard. If any individual or community is neglected and their rights suppressed, democracy is being undermined.
