Book: Democracy and the Fall of the West

Book: Democracy and the Fall of the West

From the publisher of my own volume on anti-democratic thought: Craig Smith (University of St Andrews) and Tom Miers (independent scholar), "Democracy and the Fall of the West" (Imprint Academic, March 2011).

Quote: "Democracy is killing the West. That is the stunning conclusion of this book that tears apart the consensus underpinning modern political assumptions. ... Craig Smith and Tom Miers demonstrate that, since the introduction of democracy, the power of the state has re-grown at the expense of the liberty of the individual. Far from underpinning our freedoms, Democracy is in fact undermining them. It has unshackled the coercive power of the state, and will result in the inevitable decline of the West as we know it."
