The notion of democracy is as abstract as the concept of a human being; it does not hold any meaning by itself. If anybody asked me if I love human beings, I would ask him what human being he is referring to. No one likes a person who is a liar, cruel, immoral, indecent, arrogant and an egoist, but everyone likes a person who is decent, fair, tolerant, modest and humble. This means that we like the good deeds a person does that make him a concrete entity rather than an abstract human being; similarly, we dislike the evil features of a human being.
