ABSTRACT. In the present paper, I focus on the establishment of constitutional democracies, the problem of political legitimacy within the context of moral conflict, the operational principles of modern democracy, the legitimacy of deliberative democracy, the institutional forms of democracy, and the democratization of established power structures. The argument of this paper has several parts, and I expect a few of the claims I make to be controversial. The paper aims to analyze and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of transnational governance, the moral value of democratic procedures, key dangers in liberal-democratic politics, Cicero’s rhetorical and political strategy, and the rationalistic interpretation of the democratic procedure. pp. 301–306

Keywords: political legitimacy, democratic procedure, transnational governance
