World Politics (9.13.16) Different ways to make decisions: Neo/Corporatism: - not a mutually exclusive system - a corporatist state is one of which the major social and economic groups or organization are given privilege official positions close to or within government; have access to major political leaders and a huge influence over the shaping of policies - these organization or groups are closely related to governments - example in America o labor unions  tend to vote democratic  support democratic party  no official position of power - In a corporatist system is where these organizations and unions are closely allied to the government - In a corporatist state, by having a strong alliance between government and organization, hope is that things would run more smoothly like a single body o Scandinavia, Austria, Germany, Mexico o Independent organizations are closely allied to government (use their autonomy and independence) - France-> closest to this structure History of the philosophical individuals who promoted liberal democracies: - Classical times (ancient Greece and Rome)  Although Plato, Aristotle  They were against liberalism  Tolerated democracy  Criticism of democracy  Ruled by the people o The poor and uneducated masses rule (middle class)  Makes no sense  Principle of decision-making in a democracy is majority rule o Majority tyranny  Can be manipulated by popular demigods o Demigods can become imperialists and warlike  Criticism of liberalism  A liberal open society will gravitate to the lowest possible level o Vulgarity  An open society will be at war with one another (faction and discourse)  An open society will never have high elevated standards o Christianity is hostile to democracy and liberalism  Democracy is against the principle of divine rule  Faith is an individual concern  Separation of church and state= liberalism - Promoted democracy o Niccolo Machiavelli  First philosophical democrat  You can build a political order on a poor and stupid society  They can be warlike o Rome was a sort of democracy and that’s what we should be looking towards (pagan Rome)  Napoleon like Machiavelli o Thomas Hobbes  Supports democracy  Base democracy on the people so that we can become peaceful  Peace, security, life and liberty o John Locke  Let’s get rich as well (property)  Turn people towards making money o Political philosophy goes into two different directions  One side (lose)  Beginning of German idealism o Kant o Hegel o Rousseau  Beginning to see: the people in liberal democracies are ants o Go back to ancient city with genuine human soil o Losers of history  Other side (win)  Montesquieu o Republics or liberal democracies that are dedicated to commerce are peaceful o All should become commercial democrats  Business people are peaceful people  Founding Fathers o Right constitution to put these principles in practice  Mill o Essays where women should be able to right o Extend the franchise  Locke got it right. Let’s put it into practice - Civil society: o political order which politicians keep their hands off o Outside of politics that are private o Example:  Not required outside of our political responsibilities Traveling concept: - Doesn’t travel well when applied to another country - Concepts in one country often do not mean the same as in another country - What we would consider liberalism then what Israel would consider liberalism Strong state: - Autonomy o US weak - Capacity o US strong
