Taking democracy and the aspiration for solidarity seriously

FRANK FUREDI,RENÉE SHROEDER UND ROBERT PFALLER diskutieren zum Thema: "Taking Democracy & The Aspiration for Solidarity Seriously - The Challenge For Europe"

This lecture explains why liberals have throughout history been suspicious of popular sovereignty. The liberal critique of popular sovereignty is frequently motivated by its fear of democracy, public opinion and mass politics. In recent times anxiety about the rise of so-called populist movements has led to the re-emergence of the classical liberal dread of popular sovereignty. The lecture will argue that liberalism need not fear popular sovereignty. It suggests that popular sovereignty and democracy constitutes a solid foundation for liberty and freedom and is indispensable for the future of Europe. The exercise of popular sovereignty educates the public in the virtues of freedom and liberty and prepares people to play the role of citizens.
