Abstract

In these pages, Gustavo Esteva describes the oligarchic and oppressive nature of the “democratic” nation-state, exposing the contemporary forms of domination enacted behind the cloak of “democracy”. He then explores the conditions under which people — already living beyond the “democratic” nation-state — rule themselves. Finally, he describes current initiatives advancing in this direction.
