Can democracy survive in a country where most people have been deluded into thinking that morality is a matter of arbitrary personal taste rather than objective truth.

William Gairdner, author of The War Against the Family, thinks not. As Kuttner points out, Donald Trump is a byproduct of the factors that put democracy at risk, not the spark.

And removing him will change nothing if we don’t, at the same time, put the bridle back on our capitalism. Government regulators are not the enemy if, and it’s a big if, we put the right people in that by:   Author Robert Kuttner says the decline of social contracts in Western democracies has led to the rise of right-wing populism.

His new book is Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism. Religious freedom is a right –– not a religion. It is not religion in the general sense of the term nor is it synonymous with any particular variety of Christianity. It is also understood to be synonymous with the right of individual conscience and freedom of mind.

Can Our Democracy Survive Tribalism. As Dominic Johnson argues in his recent book God Is Watching You, almost all indigenous We’re rightly concerned that religious faith can.

Can patriotic loyalty survive without adherence to the religious orientation of American democracy. In Congress reaffirmed that patriotic duty and national allegiance are not religiously neutral, and accordingly inserted the phrase "under God" (always taken for granted) into the official formula of salute to the national flag.

Third, whereas democracy induces a taste for physical pleasures and tends to lower tastes, and thus weakens most people in their commitment to the high and difficult principles on which democratic life depends, religion of the Jewish and Christian type constantly point to that danger and demand that humans draw back, and attend to the.

Religious democracy is a form of government where the values of a particular religion affect laws and rules. The term applies to all countries in which religion is incorporated into the form of government.

Democracies are characterized as secular or religious. The definition of democracy is disputed and interpreted differently amongst politicians and scholars. Like another new book, Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt’s “How Democracies Die,” “Trumpocracy” is, in part, an exploration of the reasons for the president’s electoral upset and the roots of his rule.

Books shelved as democracy: How Democracies Die: What History Reveals About Our Future by Steven Levitsky, Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville.

Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library. Alexis de Tocqueville was the French author of Democracy in America (), perhaps the best, and certainly the most widely-quoted book ever written about the United was unusual for his time in many ways.

So I've heard some folks really don't like Trump. I get it. He's a proud and unrepentant adulterer, says he's a Christian who's never repented (two mutually exclusive positions), has called about 70 people names just during this primary cycle, and exhibits the emotional maturity of an eight-year-old bully in his speech and on twitter.

One anti-Trump Author: David Ruzicka. For one thing, it’s not as good: The book is a timely polemic against globalization and marketization, not a document meant to withstand the test of time.

Robert Kuttner is co-editor of The American Prospect and a professor at Brandeis. Christian democracy is a political ideology that emerged in 19th-century Europe under the influence of Catholic social teaching, as well as Neo-Calvinism.

Christian democratic political ideology advocates for a commitment to social market principles and qualified interventionism. It was conceived as a combination of modern democratic ideas and traditional Christian values. Politics and religion should be kept apart. However, democracy and religion need not be incompatible and can be valid partners.

By tackling societal problems, the authorities can remove many of the causes of religious extremism. Education is the key way to combat ignorance, stereotypes and misunderstanding of religions. When a population is led by the religious, democracy takes a backseat to the religious dogma of the leadership.
