Article: How the EU oligarchy has downsized democracy

An article by Frank Furedi (University of Kent), published on 29 November 2011 by the British online magazine, "Spiked", was originally titled "How the EU oligarchy has downsized democracy", but now bears the rather nondescript title, "Frank Furedi on the EU".

Excerpt: "[I]t isn't the old-fashioned conservative detractors of the multitude who are at the forefront of the current cultural turn against democratic will-formation - no, it is liberal advocates of expert-driven technocratic rule who are now the most explicit denouncers of democracy. ... [A]nti-democratic ideologues believe that governments, especially democratic governments, have lost the capacity to deal with the key problems facing societies in today's globalised world."
