Democratorships Against Democracy

The collapse of 20th century ideologies has led to a renewal of passions for ethnic or national identities, which has produced a new political 205 regime, the democratorship. Invented by Vladimir Poutine in Russia, exported to China or Turkey, taking the form of illiberal democracy in Eastern Europe, the democratorship is characterized by the cult of the strong leader, the refusal of the state of law, the control of the economy and society by the state, mass propaganda and targeted repression. Democratorships frontally oppose democracies, whose crisis they exploit at the international level as well as under the domestic pressure of populist groups. However, their breakthrough masks real weaknesses due to the lack of guarantee of individual freedoms. The challenge represented by democratorships establishes once again political liberty as a central stake for the 21st century. Its survival, in the age of universal history, will depend on the capacity of democracy to reinvent itself.
