"What is Liberal Democracy? Exploring a Problematic Term," By Paul Gottfried

This essay was authored by Paul Gottfried for Nomocracy in Politics

As a young faculty member at Rockford College forty years ago, my divisional chairman, who was a devout Straussian, once told me that a faculty colleague did not believe in “liberal democracy.” I’ve no idea how my superior arrived at this discovery, but he was clearly incensed and felt “real enmity” for people who didn’t see any difference between “liberal democracy and other forms of government.” My superior also shared with me a text he was then working on that showed definitively that Marx “rejected liberal democracy.” The strange thing is that up until the moment I listened to these harangues, I had never encountered the term “liberal democracy” and when I first heard it used (at age thirty-one), I thought it was a reference to Democrats who had endorsed George McGovern. 4,398 more words

The Re-birth.

This is the blog post about rediscovering the mind-swelling, hand-sweating, eye-watering passion for writing. If you didn’t read that for seriously you can leave now. SO, I took a self-doubt induced hiatus but now we’re past all of that. 265 more words
