Comments to Osvaldo Guariglia’s “Democracy Under Siege”
Palabras clave:democracy, global justice, political participation
These comments analyze the transnational democratic institutions that, in an article published in this volume of RLFP, Guariglia defends as a limit to the two oligarchic groups that menace the contemporary democracies. This analysis raises doubts concerning two features of Guariglia’s defense. First, it questions his conceptual foundations –the human right to democracy– and, second, it questions its democratic nature, which is problematic when it is assessed from the viewpoint of radical democrat views.
