The nobleness of the voice of the people is highly respected as equal to divine power. The saying is that the people\'s voice is the voice of God (Vox Populi, Vox Dei).

The people\'s voice, to be rigorously upheld, is entrusted to public representatives and other state authorities. The people reward them with dignity, honor, and political authority, so power is managed for the sake of realizing collective prosperity. People place their fates and futures in them. The question is, why is the practice of democracy in Indonesia growing increasingly poor?
