What would real democracy be like?
To me this is an odd question. In the United States we have a real democracy – let’s go see what it’s like. There’s another one in Brazil, Athens had one, the Swiss are an interesting case, Zimbabwe’s is particularly conflictual, and so on. What an ideal democracy ‘should’ be like is a different question and maybe, once we see how the real ones work, not a very involving one — in the same way working out the aerodynamics of flying horses is not very involving.
