Secrecy, Openness and Democracy

Is democracy simply a political procedure through which citizens exercise
their sovereignty ? Is it not also inspired by a certain idea of man ?
Does it not offer a system of law which protects individuals, their personality,
their differences, their liberty, their dignity ? Its openness looks
like pure water, the sunlight, beautiful holidays, like everything we
think we love. But should not we be wary of openness as of the tyranny
of all the virtues religions, nations and doctrines have pretended to
embody in order to carry out their terrible missions more efficiently ?
