1. A pseudo-democratic government, where the democratic nature of the country is of great value without forsaking the aspect of executive oversight, to protect and secure not what the citizens want but what is thought to be in their best interest.

2. A nanny state; usually intended derisively.
When we live in a parental democracy, where the two blocks that govern do not offer alternatives, when the state becomes, as in Goya's painting, Saturn devouring his children, the radicals emerge, young anarchists flying their flags made ​​of gunpowder.
