'This isn't a democracy,' Antonio Garc'a-Trevijano denounces within the first pages of this publication. To confront the good lie that Europe does have democratic regimes, a lie rooted in people's confounding of the liberties they take pleasure in with the political freedom that they lack, the writer builds a practical thought of democracy to finish the fake concept that corruption, nation crime, and public immorality are democracy's (undesirable) items and never the common and inevitable end result of oligarchic regimes. due to a good overview of the occasions that mark the historical past of democracy, the writer finds the hindrances that, from the seventeenth century English revolution, the USA' battle of Independence, and the French Revolution, adversarial political freedom, deviating previous Europe's democratic percentages towards the present events' kingdom. There exist very important theories of the nation and of structure, yet none that may be referred to as a thought of democracy. Antonio Garc'a-Trevijano's unique thought, a latest synthesis of Rousseau's natural democracy and Montesquieu's political freedom, responds to ecu desire for a idea of democracy as a true replacement to the corrupted events' regime that used to be engendered via Western pragmatism in the course of the chilly War.
