      No one in Europe understands it. In some cases, such as in the drc, the international community should either accept the disintegration of the country or allow nondemocratic leaders to use force to put the state back together. His motivation for traveling to America was to study how this fledgling democracy maintained freedom although it had a high degree of equality. Should we be surprised that the British are, at best, ambivalent about their role?

The problem is that in some cases no one may be so directly effected as to want to complain.

      It is because of its very strength, not its weakness that it [the social power] is threatened with destruction one day. As a result, religion and political freedom mutually supported one another. As Tocqueville writes, "Freedom sees religion as the companion of its struggles and triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, the companion of its struggles and triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its rights. He speaks at length about this idea, and particularly about the importance of certain legal institutions and of religion as the basis of these mores, in Chapter Nine.

      Brazinsky, visit the Author Page. The extraordinary level of equality can be both a help and a hindrance to freedom. Includes bibliographical references and index. But, as this book demonstrates, he also made a vital contribution to the development of modern democratic and liberal internationalist thought. There is not only equality in wealth, but also equality in education.
