Arktos To Publish Alain De Benoist's 'The Problem Of Democracy'

Arktos, independent publisher of works in the field of politics, religion and tradition, is to publish 'The problem of democracy' by controversial French thinker Alain de Benoist.

ALAIN DE BENOIST - THE PROBLEM OF DEMOCRACY, to be published on the 28th of January by Arktos

The Twentieth century was the century in which Western democracy came into ascendancy, was questioned, came under attack, and finally secured its place as the sole and universal philosophy of government. In the Twenty-first century, no relevant political alternative seems to remain, and the term 'democracy' has gradually aquired a sacrosanct quality. Pledges to democratic principles have become necessary for any political argument that seeks moral legitimacy.

In 'The Problem of Democracy', Alain de Benoist questions the the concept of democracy, or rather the way that this concept is being employed by political agents who wish to legitimise actions and structures often far removed from the concept of popular rule itself. De Benoist argues that the principles derived from the French Revolution actually make true democracy impossible, as they attempt to derive popular legitimacy from an abstract collection of theoretical, cultureless 'individuals', while in fact promoting agendas far removed from the actual will of the people.

This translation is sure to inject new life into the debate surrounding democracy in the English-speaking world, as de Benoist questions established truths about what democracy is or should be, while never wavering in his defence of the right to cultural and individual self-determination within the context of popular government.
