What is democracy about?

TP Saran

In the 2-minute speech that American President Abraham Lincoln pronounced at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863, when he was consecrating the battlefield which was the scene of excruciating violence during the American Civil war into a cemetery, the word ‘democracy’ was not once used. And yet, since then, that speech has been cited as almost the foundational script of what democracy is about, and it is worth reading it in full:

‘Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
