Democracy was born
of the dissolution of the primitive community, the development of exchange,
the commodity, private property, class society, the historic creation of the
individual, of the separation of human beings from themselves in the production
of their lives. Its development is the development of the dictatorship of value
over human need, the development of state terrorism against the exploited classes.
With the total domination of value valorising itself and the total domination
of the fetishistic character of the commodity - capitalist terrorism - democracy
reaches its peak. This does not concern a particular sphere or a simple form
of domination, but rather the invariant essence which perpetuates capital's
society - by atomising and unifying on a fictive basis. By subsuming all aspects
of life, democracy practically denies the existence of classes with irreparably
antagonistic interests in order to affirm the only community which belongs to
it: the community of money. This reproduces the free individual-citizen, national
competing-being, whose corollary is the people - all within the framework of
the structures of parties and unions which make up the state.
