We need the appearance of what in English called moral Commitments, that is, the moral obligations that are assumed in the order of the common. In democracies apparent mock these purposes. If a question is present in the world which faces is the so-called "Expert knowledge" in their ability to make decisions. This leads necessarily to an increase in collective action in a public debate which went off and the obvious failures which have made it back, this time to stay. Only the traditional channels for that expression are sealed and so must use other methods.
If what we mean in more precise words, for good, he goes to a greater politicization. This is good news because the abandonment of interest in Polis has been responsible for a huge number of defects that have affected the democratic process. The struggle is to eliminate dependent citizens who expect the state and pronounce the ineffable and damaging phrase: "It gives me this government." The citizen, even beyond behave as such, shall be subject in the world that faces a constant challenge to assume duties in the socio-political community to which he belongs and should ensure that the community recognized as a member of it and he facilitate access to social goods. Boaventura de Sousa Santos developed a model called high-intensity democracy or emancipatory democracy. The author Portuguese (Limits and possibilities of democracy, among several others) involved in its analysis of a devastating critique of what he calls "hegemonic democratic thought." It builds on a project of social transformation through the creation of forms of social nonconformists, the reinvention of citizenship and the maximization of political participation.
