Default Democracy and illieteracy dont move together

Democracy and illieteracy dont move together

1. Introduction
2. Pre-requisites of Democracy
- Vibrant Civil Society
- Educated Masses (The ruled ones)
- Educated Polity (The ruling ones)
- Enlighening Mass Media
- Empowering Academia
3. When a nation is illiterate
- Vulnerable and Fragile Society
- Exploitations is rampant through:
# Government
# Anti-state groups
# Misleading Media
- Absence of Rule of Law
- Corruption is commonplace
4. Why Democracy and Illiteracy can't go hand in hand? Because
- Democratic Institutions can't be built
- Ruling leadership can't be held accountable
- Population can be looted and exploited easily
- Society and Mass Media can't be a resisting and directing force
5. How Democracy can be strengthened through Education:
- Attaining 100% Literacy Rate
- Social Justice
- Investment in Human Development
- Promoting Research and Development
- Empowered yet directed Media
6. Conclusion

Smile "Democracy and illiteracy do not move together" - CSS 2019

1. Introduction
  • Democracy promotes "rule of people, by people, for people." - Abraham Lincoln
  • Illiteracy promotes personal affiliations over country's progress, emotions overshadow logic, artificial developments replace sustainable growth
  • Democracy in an illiterate society: Chaos, Atrophy, Bureaucracy, Personal fiefdoms
  • Thesis Statement: Democracy and Illiteracy cannot go hand in hand
2. Democracy in an era of Globalisation (Mentioned the importance)
3. Literate societies make strong democracies
  • US Example: System of check and balances; Highest no. of unis., Top educational institutions, remarkable R&Ds
  • Nordic and Scandinavian Countries: Top HDI Rank, Top GE Rank, Education mandatory, Exemplary democracies
4. Literate societies protect democracy
  • Failed Turkey coup attempt 2016: Cuz of people's trust in democratic institutions
  • Yellow Vest Protests in France: Against elitist President E. Macron
  • S. African President had to resign cuz of protests against him
  • All countries had one thing in common: Educated societies
5. Illiterate societies have unstable governments and weak democracy
  • African countries coups ...
  • Pakistan and Illiteracy (further added 3-4 points like ESP2017-18 literacy report, Military-Civil tussle etc)
6. Strong democracy possible only through strong educational policies (mentioned 4-5 points, UN SDGs etc.)
7. Conclusion (ended with Quaid's motivational quote)

2200-2300 words in total excluding outline.
