Democracies in Our Changing Times

Amos Avny


The aim of the study is to examine how the transition from the orderly 20th century to the chaotic Post-modern 21st century, affects, reshapes the nature, character and the functionality of the Post-modern Democracy. This examination is conducted thru two phases that explore four areas of behavior; Personal—Needs and Feelings, Economic Drives, Social Concerns and Political Motivations. A short sum-up is presented on two comparison tables. Afterwards, a third section discusses some challenges for the future. Finally, some concluding practical points are offered for implementation. The first phase examines how peoples conduct and expectations, are changing during the transition period. It points-out that people change their aspirations and expectations, as they feel free and ready for meeting new challenges. However, at the same time, grows the number of confused individuals, who limp behind progress and need a special treatment. The economy at that time, has promoted Globalization and High-Tec industries. At the same time, society became heterogeneous and instable, while citizens, in general, seek stability and prosperity. In politics, new voters look for a greater influence and a deeper involvement in the work of government. In sum, many people want to feel, the genuine spirit of the promising post-modern era.

The second phase examines the effects and impacts of the transition on the nature and functionality of the Democratic state. It explores the similar four areas and conclude that the studys observations, well indicate how peoples demands and behavior had changed and expanded due to the requirement to fit better and comply faster, with the Post-modern Chaotic Views. Further, some improving steps for empowering Democratic states, are proposed. At the end, some short practical points are offered for assisting professional, who eventually carry-out most of the implementation work. In sum, the 21st century foresees promising and inspiring prospects for Democratic states. The implementation of these forecasts depends mainly on a solid and consistent determination of the citizens and their leaders.

Most Democracies need to run a continual decisive civic order for assuring and securing their people “Blessing of Liberty”. Only history will tell whether and when this inspiring dream would come through.
