After walking through the various arguments and analyses of the book, this concluding chapter proposes several criteria why democracy should be preferred to all other kinds of political rule, including democracies that do not include much in terms of civil, social, and cultural rights, and where even the effectiveness of political rights is impaired by poor social options. The book concludes with a characterization, not strictly a definition, of a concept of democracy that goes beyond the democratic regime.

Keywords:   varieties of democracy, democratic regime, civil rights, social rights
