Unfit for Democracy

Stephen E. Gottlieb

NYU Press

Without adherence to due process, democracies are vulnerable to intimidation. Democracies break down when outcomes are controlled by gerrymandering, denial of voting rights, and other requirements of republican government. The morality of democratic government depends on inclusion of all of the people in the democratic process. Those are powerful predictors as well as protections for the survival of democracy.

Keywords:   due process, gerrymandering, inclusion, intimidation, morality of democratic government, predictors, republican government, voting rights
