Format: Paperback
This is the most compelling argument for democracy I have read. All other forms of government lack the necessary tools to keep corruption or tyranny in check. If the true necessity of democracy is not understood, democracy itself can be used for corruptive or tyrannical ends. Reinhold Niebuhr's insight into freedom and order's mutual dependence in society is simple and yet profound. The individual requires order, and society needs freedom, to a greater extent than is commonly understood.

Dr. Niebuhr goes to the heart of light and darkness or good and evil...the why. He takes up with the relationship between man and community, community and community and nation vs. nation. He then predicts what will be the shortcomings of the UN (written in 1944) and how to avoid them. He takes up where La Rochefoucauld leaves off in an understanding of the role of self interest in creation of good and harmful motivation of the individual, communities and nations.
