    Hello CobaltDynamique2588,

    In fact, in a democracy, a group of people will regroup and by vote, will elect one or many deputies to represent them in political work. Also, they have more freedom depending on the country. Meanwhile, in a dictatorship, there is a leader, called a dictator, that imposes his own rules, normally by force on a population.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for questioning us! 

    A democracy is a political system in which leaders are elected after the population votes for them, and population opinions are important and valued. On the other hand, a dictatorship is when a single person or a single group of selected persons have all the power.

    Hope it helps!
