A good way in which people can participate in decision making is through civil associations such as farmers associations and the associations of the youths and academics. Participation in such groups is important for a number of reasons; the first reason is to protect the group interests, and the second is that these associations are educative; they make the participants more enlightened. Therefore, participation through such associations and groups removes individual isolation and strengthens the people’s position in fighting for their own interests and those of the community.

Lack of people’s participation in free associations has one big danger. The danger is that, it is not possible for an individual to pressurize the government into meeting people’s needs. The failure of individual efforts leads to the individual’s despair and frustration.
