The most important advantage of representative democracy is that it's the best system devised yet that allows the greatest number of people in a population to participate in their government. It allows most voices to be heard and represented in the running of the country.

Unfortunately, inherent in the system, is also its greatest weakness. A well-functioning democracy depends on a well-educated and informed citizenry. It's possible that how government functions can be unduly influenced by the not so well-educated and the ill-informed because they can be easily swayed by false ideas presented by people intent on preserving their own power.
