Founded in 2011, DC was inspired by the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. This website is committed to the election process as the only viable form of government for the modern world. The people must be given power over decisions that impact their lives. This is a universal human need. Democracy must be established in all countries immediately and without exception. In all places where democratic systems of government exist today, democracy must be made stronger and the power of citizens increased dramatically. We are exactly the type of website that is banned in dictatorships – and we are proud of this fact.
Democracy Chronicles has been run by Founder and Editor-in-Chief Adrian Tawfik since 2011. DC features Adrian’s writing at his Opinion Column but more of his work for the site can be found at his DC profile page. Also, be sure to see his Democracy Meme Graphic image collection by visiting DC’s Flickr page. Take a look at our Political Art section for democracy-themed creations of all kinds including cartoons, poetry, design, graphic art, photography, music, video, drawings, animation, and other original art.
Democracy Chronicles is the product of a network of democracy activists and we are actively looking for creative new contributors to join our team. If you or someone you know is interested in contributing there is no better time than the present. We are expanding and we want to hear from people from all kind of backgrounds and perspectives. From the Left or the Right, in Brooklyn or Bangladesh, we are looking for people who want to get their hands dirty and join the democracy fight. Just get in touch today to get started.
