Abstract

Social cooperation is the cement of political society. The structure and legitimacy of political power are determined by how the benefits of social cooperation are secured. The difference between a democracy and a non-democracy fundamentally comes down to whether social cooperation is voluntary or imposed by force: the more extensive the level of voluntary social cooperation, the stronger the democratic fibre of society.
