Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The alternative to a reified concept of democracy is an operative or functional concept of democracy. This involves seeing and showing more of how electoral democracies have acted over history and continue to act and less on glorious ideals that grossly fail to exist in practice. Given the indoctrination pressures on secondary education, the last chance for most is usually college political science or history courses, but that is iffy.
