Description (in Danish)
Vi elsker demokrati, men ingen af os kan rigtig sætte ord på kærligheden. Det er nok derfor, diktatorer kan udråbe sig selv som sande demokrater. Og derfor deres undersåtter bilder sig ind, at det er svaret på deres bønner. Men et folkestyre fører ikke altid til fornuftige beslutninger; det er både omstridt og uretfærdigt og løser ikke verdens problemer på magisk vis – undtagen det med tyranni. Heldigvis er Svend-Erik Skaaning, demokratiforsker ved Aarhus Universitet, ikke bange for at hæve stemmen: Vi er vilde med demokrati, fordi det er den mindst dårlige styreform.
