🦋 Proposing a taxonomy for democratic theory

what we need is an equivalent of Linnaean taxonomy for democratic theory

First step: Democracy and non-democracy

democratic theorists must bear witness that totalitarianism starts with hijacking the meaning of democracy

Second step: Identifying criteria for classes, order and genera of democratic concepts

Third step: Ordering our ‘species’

Building an encyclopaedia of democracies

We can be Darwin and Linnaeus together, creating an encyclopedia of democracies while also strengthening the community of democracy theorists
