Liberalism And Democracy

Posted October 16th, 2012 by Bryan

just half. We are in century XIX, the century that produced different vises of world, each one of them fell as a glove for the multiples> social segments that ascended at this time. The bourgeoisie who started to conquer the power if grasped to liberalism. The rising middle class, or middle classes as they prefer to say the historians (small bourgeois, they would say others) preferred the democracy, that was more inclusive obtains. Already the grumbler and proletariats, excluded first with as, if defended between chains anarco-syndicalists and the socialist ones.

Established some conquests of liberalism, the democracy will denounce its restrictive aspect, and will fight for its magnifying. We will see then where points we find these divergences. Two ideas will be detached: freedom and equality. Flags defended for the French Revolution and that they will gain different directions according to point of view of the liberal one and of the democrat. When we speak in freedom, a liberal one of century XIX would say that it is an available right to all, since that reaches the prerequisite ones, economic and educational, necessary.

Different of this, the democracy would speak that the freedom is an inalienable right, enclosing to all, independent of income and education. A good form to compare the two vises is when we speak of the right to the vote. It does not have nothing contrary to liberalism to defend the tax vote. For the opposite. The vote must be available to all that they will have capacity for such. From there to abstain itself, for example, the slaves and women. How these can be free to vote if they are imprisoned to its owners and husbands? He will not be rare those that will also defend the exclusion of the laborers. These are not dependents of its masters, say the liberal ones.
