To confront the nice lie that Europe does have democratic regimes, a lie rooted in people's confounding of the liberties they get pleasure from with the political freedom that they lack, the writer builds a practical conception of democracy to finish the fake concept that corruption, country crime, and public immorality are democracy's (undesirable) items and never the traditional and inevitable end result of oligarchic regimes. due to an exceptional assessment of the occasions that mark the heritage of democracy, the writer unearths the stumbling blocks that, from the seventeenth century English revolution, the USA' warfare of Independence, and the French Revolution, hostile political freedom, deviating outdated Europe's democratic chances towards the present events' country. There exist very important theories of the nation and of structure, yet none that may be known as a thought of democracy. Antonio Garc'a-Trevijano's unique idea, a contemporary synthesis of Rousseau's natural democracy and Montesquieu's political freedom, responds to eu desire for a idea of democracy as a true substitute to the corrupted events' regime that used to be engendered through Western pragmatism in the course of the chilly War.
