By democracy, I was not referring to the government of the United States, or to government at all. I was referring to the people, traditionally called the democracy, as opposed to the nobility (aristocracy) or a king (monarchy).

I’m writing a book on republican government based on the writings of John Adams so the ancient phrases are in my head.
