Kagagis Democracy and totalitarianism includes the nineteen lectures Aron taught at the Sorbonne University inwhen France was immersed in the Algerian war and the General De Gaulle was about to take power to establish the presidential rule of the French Fifth Republic.

We will be told that the world has changed and each time it changes more, that there are few certainties and that the thinkers of the past, although this one is recent, are not of great utility. There was no need to wait for an uprising of the governed. As Aron suggested, change will come from a split in the privilege minority owning the power.

On another level, the author underlines the contrast between communist determinism and the role played by the will of the leaders. Aron knew perfectly the man who was going to govern France. Ideology has become a mean to an end. In these terms all others are traitors. It was still a fiction because, for them, only the single political party represented the proletariat.

One of his most interesting observations is the presence of contrast between the soviet reality and the constitutional fictions. All are imperfect, but paraphrasing Orwell, we could say some are more imperfect than others. Otherwise, which political regime would be free of not being identified as an oligarchy? Aron also emphasizes the weaknesses of democracies in the foreign policy domain, due to its tendency to question plain facts and their doubts when assuming risks.

Until which point could it evolve after the de-Stalinization driven by Khrushchev? Democracia y totalitarismo : Raymond Aron : When revolutionary movements take power, one oligarchy usually replaces other. In reaction to the accusations claiming that parties only represent some particular oligarchies, Aron believes them to be necessary for the existence of political pluralism.

Rubio Plo Democracy and totalitarianism. In togalitarismo case, politics are more important to Aron than economics, and this will be one of its various objections to Marxism, the dominant creed among French intellectuals from the second half of the 20th century.

Here, fanaticism is not incompatible with some scepticism. De Gaulle faymond not need to use sedition to bury the Forth Republic. Review by Antonio Rubio Plo, international politics analyst and professor of comparative politics and Spanish foreign policy. Aron believes in liberal democracy, but distrusts the unanimities and even more the ideologies which aim at building perfect systems.

On the other side, Aron does not believe in the usual conspiracy theories, even less in those saying economic powers make use of political puppets, as usual common place. Once again, the unconditional unanimities. On the contrary, he knew how to use his seduction abilities until the point of becoming a dictator like the ones taymond the Roman Republic, a man lauded by citizens who looked for a savior of France that could put an end to the discredit of the parliamentary republic institutions that existed up to then.

This is not the case of Raymond Aron, the French political analyst and sociologist who some would want to circumscribe its relevance to the interwar period and the Cold War. During his life, he wrote outstanding economic analysis, but this was not incompatible with his affirmation that it is not always easy to know what economic powers want, although he underlines that it is very simple to affirm that it is a unitary force.

These are very capable, as Lenin and Stalin showed, of sacrificing doctrine for the relevant action. They will doubtlessly useful. In short, democracy can disappoint, but alternatives are much worse.

Review by Antonio R. Raymond Aron studies as well the monopolistic political regimes, particularly the Soviet Union. Deemocracia author reviews presidential and parliamentary democracies and compares the European and American political systems. Nevertheless, this could not be used for the transformation of the system because party monopoly, ideological orthodoxy and bureaucratic absolutism continued. Democracia y totalitarismo The monopoly is justified since the political party is the only authentic representation, because its objective is the construction of a new and more fair society.

In this regard we could reflect on a Montesquieu quote, transcribed by Aron, who affirms that whenever we see everybody tranquil in a state that calls itself a republic, we can be sure that liberty does not exist there. In this way, as Aron correctly remarks, the Fifth Republic really became the Third Empire, of course a raymonc and plebiscitary Empire.

The logical conclusion is the identification between State and rqymond. As opposed to Nazism and Fascism, which never conceal their hate towards liberal democracy, communist used to make a clear commitment to democracy, even though they never applied it.

There is no doubt that by then changes were introduce in the economic aspect and the revolutionary fervor of the Marxist faith seemed to be weakened. Soviets had several constitutions that on paper meant a plural regime. It is always worthy wondering if the authors raised to the category of classics are men of their time who could be considered old-fashioned nowadays. TOP Related Posts.
