First Resolution On First Democracy

Tuesday 2 March 2021 by Editorial

At the regular weekly meeting of the Iranian Society of Parliamentary Literature Writers and Translators, which took place virtually Monday night, March 1, 2021, the members approved their first resolution they prepared collectively on the "First Democracy. The Challenge of an Ancient Idea”, by Paul Woodruff.

First Democracy has been translated into Persian and published in Iran. The resolution urges its readers to read the book carefully. And gives an example of Woodruff’s reasoning about the trail of Socrates in the first democracy the world has ever seen.

In the near future, the Society will issue a resolution on the entire book.

The following is its first resolution:

Resolution

Whereas, “First Democracy, The Challenge of an Ancient Idea”, by Paul Woodruff, has been translated into Persian and published in Iran;

Whereas, Iranians need to know more and more about democracy;

Whereas, the Iranian Society of Parliamentary Literature Writers and Translators tries to teach them about the matter;

Whereas, the Society has decided to issue a resolution on the “First Democracy” as soon as possible;

Resolved, That the following resolution on the first section of the fifth chapter of the book to be issued:

Resolution on First Democracy

1. The fifth chapter of the book is about the significance of rule of law in a democracy.

2. The first section of this chapter is confined to discuss only the trial of Socrates.

3. According to the conclusion of this section Socrates sacrificed his life for rule of law.

4. But agreement whit this conclusion means that the first democracy in the world killed the first and innocent best philosopher the world has ever seen.

5. This result would lead to denying the necessity and usefulness of democracy.

6. Because of this, the researches for discovering the truth of the trial of Socrates have begun and yet continued.

7. According to the new findings, Socrates could defend himself in the Athenian court very easily if he would argue upon the principle of free of speech that the Athenian democracy respected.

8. But, Socrates who hated democracy, intentionally decided to not recognize the golden principle of free speech in ancient Athens to rebut the government of the ordinary people.

9. This kind of contemplation suggests that “First Democracy” must be read very carefully.
