National Identity and Integrity in the Context of Democracy
Neudorflová, Marie
Democracy as a political system serving common good can be successfully established only in society with rooted identity, considerably integrated on a number of levels, advanced sufficiently to share values and practices realted to democracy. For that reason and on the basis of historical experience, a nation-state seems to be still the most suitable entity for establishing and maintaining a functional democracy. Entities less integrated face a number of extra problems when trying to maintain a democracy.
Entropic Degeneration of Democracy
Bernat, Lukáš ; Pavlík, Ján (advisor) ; Šalamon, Tomáš (referee)
Democracy is always included in the discourse ?ver the theme of freedom and it is almost always considered an integral part of social order. In this context, it is a balance between freedom and power. Such discourses, however, view democracy as a political ideal and the real applications often run into democratic influences and social barriers of degenerative nature. These barriers leave nothing but the torso under the formal guise of democratic principles. This thesis unravels the influences and barriers that interfere with the application of the ideal of democracy. In this context, the technological development with which the dynamics of both social and political order changes, cannot be ignored. Based on the pieces of information about what kind of threat the degenerative effects of democracy represent, the thesis searches for such attributes, on the basis of which it is possible to construct a model of the entropic degeneration of democracy.
