Roger de Weck Wed, 24th June 2020, 8:15 pm The power of democracy A response to the authoritarian reactionaries All around authoritarians are pressing for democracy. But why do liberals and leftists remain so defensive? Are the conservatives tilting to the right? The weakness of the democrats is much more dangerous than the volume of the reactionaries, warns Roger de Weck. His book provides an overview – and confidence, it shows the methods and weaknesses of the right: Whoever wants to, can stop them in their cultural struggle against liberality. In order to prevent yesterday’s attacks on the future, democrats must work on the democracy of tomorrow, making it capable of action. Only in this way can we respond to the authorities, together with the emerging generation Greta.
