Sobre democracia consensual, En torno a ideas de Kwasi Wiredu, por Luis Villoro
This article follows up parallels between Kwasi Wiredu's suggestion of a democracy based on consensus in Africa and similar movements in indigenous America. In view of the processes of transition from traditional communities in pluralist societies and the resulting problems for a form of government based on consensus, some programmatic ideas are sketched out to counter the latter. Thereby, a recognition of all differences proves crucial, as a basis for supplementing representational democracy with participatory elements of direct democracy.
