Crisis in the Western Democracy
Introduction
For decades, Western countries have been used as examples for perfect democracies
which were characterized by the involvement of all the stakeholders in important decision
making. Although trust is the central pillar of democracy recently, many Western country
democracies seem to disregard it out rightly, a factor which has resulted to crisis within Western
many democracies (Robert). Most conventional political parties are currently being distraught by
peripheral actions. There has been an upsurge in nationalism and voter and political party
schism. A combination of these factors has put pressure on the underlying beliefs of governance
of the people by the people which lays the very foundation of democracy. This paper seeks to
discuss on the crisis in the Western democracies and the theories that can be used to explain the
inevitability of what is happening in contemporary democratic nations.
Democracies in most Western nations are currently at a strain. In Europe, far-right

collaboration to more blinkered and elitist tendencies.
Arthur defines Western democracy also known as liberal democracy as “a form of
democracy characterized by separation of power, elections involving different political parties, a
market economy that supports private property and equal protection of civil rights, human rights,
civil liberties and political freedom of all the people” (10). From the Marxist theory of the crisis
of capitalism, the definition of democracy crisis can be transposed to mean the initial stage
towards democracy downfall and a revolution into an autocratic regime (Merkel). However,
since Western democracies are well grounded and mature, their full collapse is impossible
(crouch). Therefore this term has been replaced by latent crisis whereby despite the existence of
formal institutions, there is no existence of democratically legitimate representation within the
government hence what remains is a flawed democracy (Merkel).
