The social contract or principles of political right
“Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.” Winston Churchill
Beginning with Churchills arguement (from the given quote), where can we find Chruchill’s argument within Rousseaus’ writings or rather his philosophy? Provide supporting evidence.
Here are a few questions to consider as you construct your answer to the question above:
1. Who is the present power?
2. Who is the power that ought (should) be?
3. Why is there a struggle between these two powers?
4. Does Democracy exist even though there is an ever present and evolving power “powers” struggle?
