  1. Stopping the authoritarian rot in Europe EUOBSERVER.COM A few weeks ago, the European Union underwent a fundamental change: it ceased being a bloc of exclusively democratic states. Even worse - leaders across Europe barely flinched. I really don't understand (Well, of course, I do, but still.) why Hungary's move towards a full-blown authoritarian regime has received so little public attention. No matter what your opinion on the European Union was prior to this, there is no denying that this is a huge and important story about how the European Union has undergone a fundamental change. It's clearly a historic change for the EU as it has now truly ceased being a bloc of exclusively democratic states. And European leaders have so far been awfully quiet and spinelessness about it all.

    USA is no longer a full democracy

    Last year, and for the first time, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which publishes annual reports on the development of democracy, demoted the US from a full democracy to a flawed democracy. CNBC reported on this story: And apparently, Americans can't blame it all on Trump. The US has been on the brink of becoming a flawed democracy for several years, and it would have slipped below 8.0 no matter the election result in 2016. Instead, the EIU says dwindling trust in the US political system, the government and its elected representatives are the cause for the US becoming a flawed democracy. What are your thoughts on this story? Can the US become a full democracy again, or is it going to slip further down in democracy rankings?

    What is democracy?

    I'm working on a short paper about democracy, and it got me thinking about how we define and value democracy differently. What is a democracy for you? When is a country democratic and when is it not a democracy? What aspects define democracy? Is democracy only the right to vote in free and fair elections? Or does it include other, more "liberal" rights such as private property rights, small government, or does it include more "socialist" rights such as socioeconomic equality?
