What is to be Done

Liberal democracy is sweet and addictive and indeed in the most extreme case, the USA, unbridled individual liberty overwhelms many of the collective needs of the citizens. The subject is almost sacrosanct and those who indulge in criticism are labeled as Marxists, socialists, fundamentalists and worse. These labels are used because alternatives to democracy cannot be perceived!
The alternative to democracy at issue in this case involves looking into "how authoritarian decisions based on consensus science can be implemented to contain greenhouse emissions." From the co-author of this book.
