Sample text

Furthermore, they challenged the theory of the French Revolution developed by revisionist historians, from Alexis de Tocqueville to Francois Furet. According to this theory, there are no social motives for a revolution in society. However, a researcher finds them in the very composition of the parliamentary corps split into aristocrats and representatives of the third estate. This conflict increased tensions and triggered revolutionary processes in society. The Constitutional Assembly, being a closed political body greatly influenced by the social milieu, not only expressed but also created a new public opinion by crystallizing and intensifying social antagonisms.

Lastly, the interpretation of democracy as a balance of elites stresses the dynamic character of that equilibrium. Sociologists took the notion of dysfunction from biology. It means a situation where normal rational behaviour entails irrational and even destructive consequences under new social conditions. We believe that this approach clearly defines the essential role of constitutionalism in a rapidly changing society. Constitutional behaviour, which is in compliance with the Basic Law, is always more conservative compared with the behaviour not governed by the law.

The power of the people is considered to be the power of their representatives. Additional guarantees are provided by plebiscite, proportional government and imperative mandate of the members of parliament. In the case of major social and political conflicts, power should be delegated to citizens with the permission of the elected delegates, for the power of the people is the highest in democracy. Those advocating this type of constitutionalism count on the people’s high morale and adherence to revolutionary principles.
