Keeping Utopia Values and Goals Longer

Who is the real founder of democracy, or to put it differently "The mother of democracy"? Democracy is generally etiologically associated with the efforts of the ancient Greeks. Are the Christians with their cardinals - the men who will elect a new Pope on the death of the current incumbent - the real founder of democracy; India has its own argument to be the mother of democracy I suppose; and so does Croatia - with The Republic of Ragusa. In my opinion, just because parliament exists doesn't automatically mean the Republic is a real Democracy with human rights in place and equality for all its citizens. The Parliament of England is from the 13th century, but the Althing - the oldest surviving parliament in the world, is the national parliament of Iceland. The Althing is the oldest legislature in the world that still exists. It was founded in 930. Surely, French Revolution has popularised human beings as individuals best suited to democracy, protected by human rights, and represented in the parliament. I remain against direct democracy because representative democracy is better for keeping utopia values and goals longer.
