This is an article by Neil Clarke on Russia Today.
There are some quite populist tones in Neil Clarke’s work. It may be worth questioning whether popular democracy really is viable. Russia has ‘democracy’ but coupled with an authoritarian centre. Perhaps this is a better model?
That said, in this piece, Neil Clarke makes the key point: Western liberal ‘democracy’ does not mean democracy. It means Western liberal values. You can choose… but there is only one right choice.
Western ‘democracy’ is a mask for racist and imperialist attitudes.
