Studies Leading to Direct Democracy
A Brief Outline of A Theory of Direct Democracy and References to Other Theories.
by George S. Sagi
Book Review by Dr. Magdolna Kovacs:
This fundamental presentation on DIRECT DEMOCRACY (DD) should be compulsory reading in faculties of political science, sociology, and social philosophy. It is essential for pioneering members of DD movements, environmentalists, rights organizations and progressive-thinking individuals who want to secure the future of civilization.
A unique potential exists today. Civilization could destroy itself or it could create a universal material and cultural well-being for all people. A profound analysis from the 'fundamental imposition' on life by nature, and the 'basic imposition' of society, this book demonstrates the need for a new, uplifting, social morality for the peoples of the world to live cooperatively and in peace.
No other book exposes so clearly the 'group structure' of society, the 'paradoxes of the political era', the coming threat of global competition, the myths of free market and free elections and the inherently adversarial nature of the 'era of politics'. Profound analysis, as well as practical methods and models, demonstrate the need for radical and truly democratic changes to save the 'total environment'. Direct democracy can accomplish this. It requires self-governances by the people. Is it utopia? No, it is not. This book presents an alternative to an otherwise bleak future.
