Democracy as a neocon trick
|Product Description: |
Alexander Boot analyses the development of democracy from its classical roots, through developments during the Enlightenment - with special reference to the US constitution and democratic experience - to the present day. He charts the degeneration of democracy from being a system for the wielding of power to being the sole legitimisation of power. Treated as the sole source of power 'democracy' is an idol which should not be worshippped and those who do so can use it as an authoritarian, despotic and oppressive power.
