The successful democratic transitions in South Korea and Taiwan had widespread social support. In both domestic and international relations, rational action requires that each group expose, examine, and seek to understand dispassionately its own distortions and those of other groups. “Understanding” ideology is more than grasping the fact that distortion exists.

China could not now be described in any way as a liberal democracy. This is the impossible task of Marxism, as the inefficiencies of state owned monopolies reduces overall wealth, as it destroys the incentive to work, as resources are invested irrationally, and as more and more people take advantage of the welfare state rather than contributing, the system sinks into despair and backwardness, while the human condition as well as the environment deteriorates.

Such formulations suggest that Habermas equated the meaning of truth with the outcome of a universal, rational consensus, which he understood in reference to the ideal speech situation (ibid., 97–98). While ‘high’ Toryism articulates a neo-feudal belief in a ruling class and a pre-democratic faith in established institutions, the Tory tradition is also hospitable to welfarist and reformist ideas, providing these serve the cause of social continuity.

Marxists have called for a‘dictatorship of the proletariat’, a transitional period between a proletarian revolution and theachievement of full communism, during which the proletariat will have to arm and organizeitself against the threat of counter-revolution.
