A Political and Social Critique.
Mehl, Bernard
Theory into Practice, v18 n5 p379-85 Dec 1979
The author argues that democracy as a political entity received its fundamental change through Rousseau, who proclaimed egalitarianism as the key element of political freedom. It is argued that Maoism takes the egalitarian principle to its ultimate conclusion: not only are all men considered equal, but they must act equal. (MJB)
