      Lessons in the Decline of Democracy From the Ruined Roman Republic A new book argues that violent rhetoric and disregard for political norms was the beginning of Rome’s end.   The truth about smart cities: ‘In the end, they will destroy democracy' The smart city is, to many urban thinkers, just a buzzphrase that has outlived its usefulness: ‘the wrong idea pitched.

      Through their work, they conclude that Strauss was a sober defender of liberal democracy, aware of both its strengths and its weaknesses. Balanced and accessible, The Truth about Leo Strauss is a must-read for anyone who wants to more fully comprehend this enigmatic philosopher and his much-disputed s:   The simplest answer would be that there is some interplay between liberal democracy and communism. The book explains this interplay in detail. At the onset, I will point to one obvious platform linking both regimes. Both communism and liberal democracy are regimes whose intent is to change reality for the better.

    11 hours ago  It's a portrait of a troubled American family that created the damaged, sadistic man who is now president of the United States. In Mary's account, for both Donald Trump and his father, Fred Trump.   failing to put politics in its place threatens to endanger the most vulnerable among us. Those who persist in overdoing democracy of course might succeed in the short run in achieving their goals, but they do so at the broader expense of contributing to a thriving democracy.

His questionable attitudes. Ancient Greek politics, philosophy, art and scientific achievements greatly influenced Western civilizations today.

One example of their legacy is the Olympic Games. Use the videos, media, reference materials, and other resources in this collection to teach about ancient Greece, its role in modern-day democracy, and civic engagement.

In the second part of her exploration of ancient Athens, Bettany Hughes examines how, as Athenian democracy progressed, it became embroiled in the clash of new and old ideas; so much so that Athens started to tear itself apart.

During the fifth century Athens was constantly at war with the Spartans. It is set in train simply by reminding people of the central argument of this essay: that democracy is not a truth machine because the truth is not a matter of opinion and the popularity of truth claims is no guide to whether we should believe them.

In general, the truth is something one looks up, not something one has to decide on for oneself. In politics, truth has taken a beating in recent years, and from two directions. From one side, the very idea of truth has been attacked as, at best, an unnecessary, grandiose, and distracting superfluity and, at worst, a remnant of metaphysical foundationalism, an enemy of democracy.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury.

After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be. Bettany Hughes searches for the truth about the Golden Age of Ancient Athens, investigating how a barren rock wedged between the East and West became the first democracy 2, years ago.

Democracy, liberty and the freedom of speech are trumpeted as the bedrock of western civilisation, but what was Athens really like. The Origin of Democracy contrasts three ancient civilizations - Roman, Greek, and Persian - primarily focusing on their approaches to ruling the citizens that comprised them.

In B.C., in Athens, Socrates was found guilty by jury for corrupting the minds of young people and similar dissent-related charges, and put to death by poisoning. Gregory Steven Dundas offers a detailed reading of governmental forms in the Book of Mormon in the context of other ancient civilizations.

He makes the case that democracy was almost unknown in the ancient world and that nearly all people assumed that kingship was the best form of government.

The Freedom House electoral democracy measure is a thin concept. Its measure of democracy. based on political rights and civil liberties is “thicker” than the measure of “electoral democracy”.

Other definitions of democracy have broadened to include aspects of society and political culture in. democratic societies. “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.” (Plato) In this essay I would like to explore how an understanding of ethics and politics in ancient philosophy can help those seeking to bring truth into politics communicate effectively.

From Tocqueville’s copious notes of what he had seen and heard came the classic text De la Démocratie en Amérique, published in two large volumes, the first inthe second in The first volume focused primarily on political society; the second, on civil society.

Criticism of democracy is grounded in democracy's purpose, process and outcomes. Since Classical antiquity and through the modern era, democracy has been associated with "rule of the people," "rule of the majority," and free selection or election either through direct participation or elected representation respectively.

Political thinkers approach their critique of democracy from different. Free speech in the ancient democracy was not a protected right but an expression of the freedom from hierarchy, awe, reverence and shame.

It was thus an essential ingredient of the egalitarianism of that regime. That freedom was challenged by the consequences of the rejection of shame (aidos) which had served as a cohesive force within the polity.

Philosopher Plato discusses five types of regimes (Republic, Book VIII; Greek: πέντε πολιτεῖαι).They are Aristocracy, Timocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy, and also assigns a man to each of these regimes to illustrate what they stand for. The tyrannical man would represent Tyranny, for example.

Ancient and Modern Democracy is a comprehensive account of Athenian democracy as a subject of criticism, admiration and scholarly debate for 2, years, covering the features of Athenian democracy, its importance for the English, American and French revolutions and for the debates on democracy and political liberty from the nineteenth century.
