        In Prashant Bhushan's contempt case, the debates about Facebook, and the aborted publication of a Bloomsbury book, the voice of the champions of pluralistic democracy has been clear and resounding. Over the last few days, news media have brought some significant developments that mark the struggle. Keith Brown (5/22/ AM). Democracy is a strange bed fellow, if we all have equal right As we should but all have different creeds, religions and self belief, then maybe all we have left is compromise, live and let live without prejudice.

      The Democracy Sourcebook offers a collection of classic writings and contemporary scholarship on democracy, creating a book that can be used by undergraduate and graduate students in a wide variety of courses, including American politics, international relations, comparative politics, and political philosophy. The editors have chosen substantial excerpts from the essential theorists of the Reviews: 1. Walt Whitman is America’s world poet—a latter-day successor to Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Shakespeare. In Leaves of Grass (, ), he celebrated democracy, nature, love, and friendship. This monumental work chanted praises to the body as well as to the soul, and found beauty and reassurance even in death. Along with Emily Dickinson, Whitman is regarded as one of America’s most.

        With gentle persuasion he enlists poetry in the ranks of democracy. Poetry, after all. is of, by, and for the self. Warren observes: “Only insofar as the work establishes and expresses a self.   Nonetheless, the skeptics remain in the minority. Since the start of the 20th Century and the advent of mass parties, the prevailing view adheres to a renowned maxim formulated in by scholar Elmer Eric Schattschneider: “The political parties created democracy and modern democracy is unthinkable save in terms of the parties.”.
