defining democracy as neo-communism…//Blaming the People | The Nation

September 26th, 2017 · No Comments

This article is a question mark but at least it raises an issue true form the era of Rousseau attempting to define democracy: electoral democracy was only one of the possible ways of defining it.
We have indirectly discussed this question in terms of our ‘democratic market neo-communism’ by extending the framework of ‘democracy’ in creating a communism of social/economic equality as a constitutional communism, with built in trends toward economic rights, etc…
Surely a simple study of ideological conditioning could better diagnose the problem than sophistries about ‘epistocracy’…

The so-called epistocracy could be even worse in its proneness equally to ideology. Where was the epistocracy on the question of darwinism, or 9/11, etc…

To treat democracy only in terms of the individual voter and his or her competence is like having microeconomics without any macro.
