A method of democracy that encourages disagreement as a necessary part of the democratic process. Radical democracy holds to the opinion that differences cannot be overcome through rational discourse or formal discussions. Rather than seeking to deter differences of opinion and create absolute consensus, radical democracy is an attempt to utilize those differences in manner consistent with the notion of democracy as a contest between two or more rival factions.
I prefer when political parties agree with one another? If we had a radical democracy, I would have a choice that means something and I don't know if I'm ready for that responsibility.
