Abstract

There is a wide disparity between popular images of democracy – which approximate the well known and predominantly normative models of deliberative-participatory and (neo-classical) pluralist-representative democracy – and the actual democratic practices and power relations. The latter approximate closely the representative-elitist model of democracy (‘elite democracy’), as outlined by Weber and Schumpeter and as elaborated by contemporary elite scholars and students of ‘leader democracy’. This disparity between popular image and actual practice causes numerous confusions, as well as political disfunctions, especially the false political norms and expectations.
