Abstract

Since the mid-1960s pluralism has been increasingly criticized by new-right thinkers who revive and modernize many of the classical ideas of liberalism, and use them to explain how democratic political systems can generate pathological results. In some Western countries, such as the UK under the Thatcher governments or the USA under Reagan, these ideas almost became an orthodoxy powerful enough to displace pluralism as the conventional wisdom of academic and mass media analyses.
