    Athenian "democracy" was a huge step forward.

    For 500BC.

      I think I need an expansion from you on 'evolution'.

      What aspect of Athenian democracy is obsolete?

        That's an interesting choice of words.  :)

        I don't know obsolete, but I'll pass on Athenian democracy only being available to the "in group".

        Sadly I suppose that isn't technically obsolete, looking around here.
