N. T. Wright on Democracy

I put it would be interesting to go to http://www.ntrightpage.com and do a google search for “democracy” and see what comes up.  I might update this page from time to time.

To imagine, as some seem to do, that western democracy is the perfect political system, and that if only everyone else adopted it Utopia would finally arrive, looks like a bit of displacement activity to distract attention from the fact that we’ve had this democracy for two centuries and many of our problems are just as intractable as they were before.
