Humility and Democracy | John Keane

Democracy is an ethic whose universality, its applicability everywhere on the face of the earth, stems from its commitment to ‘pluriversality’. It stands for the robust protection of peoples and their biosphere against bogus First Principles and arrogant Grand Ideologies and their claims upon power. Democracy is not a First Principle. It stands guard against pompous Universals, including the imaginings of Liberal Democracy and Western Democracy. Its key ethic is humility, and it therefore remains calm when confronted by the provocative question (posed by the Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk in Snow) of whether particular democracies can endure rival forms of democracy created by people they don’t much like.
