Socialism and capitalism are economic systems and on this website we focus on political systems: democracy or otherwise. We are committed to the election process as the only viable form of government in the modern world and are advocates for the establishing democracy in all countries immediately and without exception. In other words, we aim to be exactly the type of website that is banned in dictatorships – and we are proud of this fact.

Adrian Tawfik has run Democracy Chronicles since 2011. He received a B.A. from New School University and is based in New York City. Democracy Chronicles features Adrian’s editorial column, a series of articles concerned with all things democracy.

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.
