Can you undermine and even get rid of democracy while ostensibly playing by its rules? The answer is a blindingly obvious yes as has been shown by a long line of demagogues and manipulators from the ancient Greeks via 1930’s Europe to contemporary Eastern Europe. The question is pertinent and urgent because of all those who are now trying to dismemberWestern democracy, whether out of their own self-interest or because it aligns with campaigns initiated by the world’s various authoritarian regimes. It touches on many aspects of Western life, from Brexit politics to Twitter.
