Types of policies and their characteristics

1) Democratic. It means that all citizens of the policy, regardless of social, material, property status, had the right to participate in the political life of the policy: to create a law, vote, discuss important state issues. Athens was such a policy.
2) Aristocratic. The second type of polis in Ancient Greece. In this case, not the entire demos – the people – participates in power, but only certain elective strata of society – aristocrats, who, due to their special origin, intelligence, talent, and abilities, have the exclusive right to exercise their political rights, engaging in lawmaking, discussing important matters in state bodies … Sparta was an aristocratic city.
3) Oligarchic. Another type of the Ancient Greek polis. Here, the bearer of power, again, is not the demos, but a certain circle of people who have great material wealth, great economic power, and as a result have the exclusive right to political power. Carthage was such a policy, where noble and rich people were engaged in solving state problems.
