Reason and Democracy What is the relationship between Reason and Democracy? Why did Monarchy come to be replaced by Democracy? Are ordinary people extraordinary in the art of government? Is perfect democracy practicable? What is the necessity of Parliamentary Democracy? Democracy is on the anvil. Democracy is in crisis. Has Parliamentary Democracy succeeded? What is the likely future of Parliamentary Democracy? Will Democracy come to be replaced by Monarchy or Totalitarianism? Individualistic Democracy leads to a huge organised but unbridled competitive system — to the present industrialised capitalism, and to an increasing plutocratic tendency. It leads to scramble

Definitions and Explanations of Sociological and Political Terms (Collected from Various Dictionaries and Encyclopidias) Anarchism is the belief that it is practicable and desirable to abolish all organised government, laws and machinery for law enforcement. Anarchists aim at a Stateless society in which harmony is maintained by voluntary agreements among individuals and groups. They envisage a social order without prisons, armies, police or other organised force to maintain property rights, collect taxes or enforce such personal obligations as contracts, debts or alimony. Aristocracy denotes the theory and practice of government by an elite generally

Introduction •Reason projects the democratic Trinity of Godheads: Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. •But Reason cannot sufficiently establish them or sustain them. One by one, these Godheads tend to be discarded as noxious democratic chimeras. •What is the solution? The Train of Reason Democracy - Socialism - Anarchism Liberty - Equality - Fraternity "If we may judge from the modern movement, the progress of the reason as a social renovator and creator, if not interrupted in its course, would be destined to pass through three successive stages which are the very logic of its growth, the first individualistic and increasingly democratic with liberty for its

Glimpses of the New Social Order A society that lives not by its men but by its institutions is a machine "A society that lives not by its men but by its institutions, is not a collective soul, but a machine; its life becomes a mechanical product and ceases to be a living growth. Therefore the coming of a spiritual age must be preceded by the appearance of an increasing number of individuals who are no longer satisfied with the normal intellectual, vital and physical existence of man, but perceive that a greater evolution is the real goal of humanity and attempt to effect it in themselves, to lead others to it and to make it the recognised goal of

The Present situation and What we should do A conflict between the two systems, Capitalistic and Socialistic, seems for the present a more likely issue "At one time it was possible to regard as an eventual possibility the extension of Socialism to all the nations; ...But... there might not be or not for a long time to come an inevitable tide of the spread of Socialism to all the peoples of the earth: other forces might arise which would dispute what seemed at one time and perhaps still seems the most likely outcome of existing world tendencies; the conflict between Communism and the less extreme socialistic idea which still respects the principle of liberty,

Socialism leads to the sacrifice of individual liberty in order to establish the principle of Equality. What is the remedy? Democratic Socialism? Is Democratic Socialism likely to succeed? Is it likely to be widespread in the near future? Or will it give way to State Socialism? What is the truth behind the State Socialism? What are
