From the September 1943 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As used in connection with the philosophy of government, the terms "democracy" and "democratic" refer to a government in which the authority and right to govern are recognized as vested, either directly or through chosen representatives, in the people themselves. True democracy is the highest form of human government and keeps open the way for thought to find that God alone governs man.
