Example text

Unlike revolutionary movements that thrive on regime weakness and pose comprehensive alternatives to ruling arrangements, democracy movements often do not juxtapose new ideas about governance with those state actors espouse – a word I use in a strictly limited way. Often, authoritarian regimes advocate democratic principles but fail to act democratically: some present authoritarian rule as merely transitional, while others redefine democracy as (faux) consensus, (enforced) social harmony, or (alleged) equity while retaining authoritarian practices.
