Toying Around: -archies, -cracies & -isms
Ebook and Print-on-Demand Self-Publication
Is democracy failing us?
The publication presents a short essay in interpretation
of the press coverage of protests during the 2017 US
presidential inauguration that poses this very question.
In search of an answer, we encounter a collection
of Wikipedia articles in the second half of the book,
showcasing a wide variety of forms of government.
From Matriarchy to Technocracy to Despotism,
engaging with the theories and histories of these
-archies, -cracies and -isms might help us to identify
ways to move forward with democracies in crisis.
