Are our 'democracies' truly democratic? In the Name of the People examines the myth of modern democracy and finds it wanting. The various oligarchies of the world blame the madness of modern life on the greed and stupidity of ordinary people: this book argues that, on the contrary, elites indulge a limitless greed for power and wealth under cover of 'giving the people what they want'.
As a coda to his short book, Ivo Mosley examines what true democracy has meant over the last two and a half millennia, and examines how it could be incorporated into current political structures to give them meaning, life and accountability.

Keywords: Democracy, oligarchy, elitism, politics, political science, culture, representation, representative government, debt, corporations, government, election, bureaucracy, monarchy, aristocracy, banking crisis, bankers, profit, economics, civilization
