Still the age of democratic revolutions...

The return of the state and of authoritarianism? Forget it, freedom is still in demand, and the great recession may help topple authoritarian - not democratic - regimes, as Iran may show, says Ross Douthat in The New York Times (June 15).

For an argument along the same line, but with regard to more developed countries, see my article “La crise des capitalismes hiérarchiques“ published in Commentaire (December 2006)and available here.
