Al Gore in his new book “The Assault on Reason” has tried to reason out that dimensions the American democracy has taken, it is in danger of being hollowed out. An article worth reading. It has been published in “Time” magazine (may 28,2007). Its theme is much more relevant to Indian democracy where there is an increasing trend of muscle-power, money-power and lung-power. If we donot realize the perils, the democracy may become mobocracy.
