Do we really need democracy?

Polina Sotnikova - high school student in HSE LYCEUM

To begin with, I guess, there is such a subject as social studies in every school all around the world, where we are taught, what democracy is.

Is it important to live in a democracy?

I finally opened my eyes. While I am trying to find out where I am, a person dressed in white is coming towards me. He says that surgery was successful, that I was sleeping for three days and that I am going to recover soon. I realize that I am in a hospital right now, lying in a cozy bed and feeling so weak that I even can’t raise my hand. I am trying to remember how I ended up here, while a crowd is shouting out my name. Some memories come to my mind.…

Democracy in the world was not criticized only by a lazy person, because the thesis that democracy is a bad form of government does not cause me any surprise. However, personally, I am not a fan of supporting conversations like “democracy is not suitable for our country”. I believe that a country naturally has the form of government that suits it most.

Under a democratic system, every person knows from childhood that he has the right to vote and the…

Is it important to live in a democracy?

            The common sense of modern, globalised and technological world would somehow magically impose that the answer to our big question be looked for through a historically well-established and apparently well-functioning statistical method. Take a random sampling scenario and you will soon hear the opinion of he who sympathises with Orbán’s concept of ‘illiberal democracy’: the best of all the hitherto tested regimes is not liberal because there is always a compromise in enjoying…

Democracy as an idea has evolved and expanded over a period of time to take meanings and fundamentals under its fold, it was not previously designed for. If one compares the contemporary understanding of democracy with what it was understood as back when the term was coined; one would not call the latter democracy at all. This paper will call this phenomena ‘extant frame of reference’, where the terms used in the past and the meanings ascribed to it always appear inadequate when seen from…

Enemy of the People: Trump's War on the Press, with Marvin Kalb

Trump has a love-hate relationship with the press, which he calls "the enemy of the people" when it crosses him, knowing nothing of the origins of the phrase, says Marvin Kalb. Yet the pillars of democracy are the sanctity of the court and the freedom of the press. "I think that President Trump—not wittingly, unwittingly—is moving this nation away from our common understanding of democracy toward something that edges toward authoritarianism."

A Savage Order, with Rachel Kleinfeld

Her conclusion is ultimately optimistic: Though it's never easy, real democracy (not autocracy in disguise) and a vibrant middle class can provide a path out of violence.
