Two Harvard professors explain the dangerous world we are facing todayDemocracies can die at a stroke or they can die slowlyWhat most often happens deceptively, when, in a piecemeal way, with the election of an authoritarian leader, abuse of government power, and repression of the oppositionAll three measures are being taken around the world – at least not with the election of Donald Trump – and we all need to understand how we can stop them.In Comment les Démocraties Mourir, Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt drew insightful lessons from history – from the rule of General Augusto Pinochet in Chile, to the calm, to the fragility of Turkey’s constitutional system by President Recip Erdogan to shed light on the ventilation regime through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.In particular, they highlight the dangers of an authoritarian leader facing a major crisisBased on years of research, they present a deep understanding of how and why democracies die; an alarming observation of the analysis of how democracy is being diverted today in the United States and beyond; and a guide to nurturing and repairing the threat of democracy for governments, political parties and individuals.History does not repeat itselfBut we can protect our democracy by learning from its lessons before it is too late.
