西方现代政治民主的基本要件

   西方现代政治民主的基本要件

   Western World Political Democracy

   

   By thomasgguo

   

   

   现代西方国家民主至少包括四个要件:大众主权,政治平等,政治自由,及多数规则。大众主权即人民有最终决定权,体现为代议制民主,人民直接选举产生下议院议员,由议员代表人民行使立法权,间接选举产生国家领导人(总统,总理),行使行政管理权;政治平等表现为定期公开的自由选举,选举权一人一票,加拿大早在上个世纪50年代即已没有政治犯;普通刑事犯的政治权利,自1996年始,在狱犯人全部享有平等的投票权;政治自由指人权公约确认的公民基本自由,包括良心自由,宗教自由,思想自由,信仰自由,意见自由,表达自由,出版自由,和平集会自由,结社组党自由;多数规则受不得任意侵犯少数人的权利的限制,主要由上议院平衡制约。必须指出的是:政治民主仅是共和宪政自由民主政体的一个要素,而非全部。中国自由宪政民主运动的目标决非纯民主,而是共和宪政自由民主。

   

   Democracy

   In the past, many features of the Canadianpolitical system were undemocratic, but Canada has become increasinglydemocratic over time.Democracy in the modern western world it usuallyincludes the elements of popular sovereignty, political equality, politicalfreedom, and majority rule.

   

   Popular sovereignty

   Popular sovereignty means that the peoplehave final say, which in modern political system take the form of elections atcertain specified intervals. The election held at least every five years, Bymeans of plebiscites or referendums, only three times since 1867, when in 1898,1942 and 1992.Canadian cherished representativedemocracy, in which elected officials and appointed authorities made decisionson people’s behalf.Popular sovereignty is normally exercised inperiodic elections, which are mere opportunity to select those who will beresponsible for making political decision over the next four years on behalf ofwhole population. Political thinker believes that the people are the bestjudges for those who have best virtue and merit, and public interest and good.

   

   Political equality

   Everyone is equal on Election Day. Women,those without property, aboriginal, and various minority ethno culture group,excluded in the past. Considerable room for inequality remain in the electoralsystem. Political parties have been privately financed and it many well be thatthose who contributed money to a party or candidates expected to get somethingin return. Thus those help finance elections have more influence than thosemerely vote, beyond election day, tremendous inequality in political influencebegin to emerge, such as in-advocacy group and lobbying activity

   

   Political freedom

   

   Everyone has the fundamental freedoms. Freedomof conscience and religion;Freedom of thought, belief, opinion,expression, press, media;Freedom of peaceful assembly;Freedomof associationCharter provided a new means of enforcing rights andfreedoms, using the Courts to invalidate legislation that infringed on them.Sec 98 of Canadian Criminal Code prohibiting “unlawful association”, it wasin traduced after the 1919 Winnipeg general strike and not repealed until 1936.Incarceration or deportation of Canadian Japanese deprived personalliberty, property, and livelihood, as well as freedom of expression.Invocationof the War Measure Act 1970, imprison 400 non-violent Quebec separatists whohad no connection with the FLQ, which was outlawed.During theauthoritarian regime of Maurice Deplessis in Quebec; 2011 Governmentinfringement of political freedom in the anti-terrorism legislation after 2001.

   

   Majority rules donot mean people have the right to arbitrary infringethe minority rights. Senate’s role is protect the minority rights and check thepowers of majority.
