ABSTRACT
Chapter 6 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. The author discusses the kind of democracy that could prevent terrorism. He considers the prevailing U.S. foreign policy to be undemocratic and tyrannical and encourages terrorism in the marginalized enemy. He finds in Socrates' philosophy a model of democracy that is close to the American idea of democracy, one that aims at a dialogue through which people as a community discern the ideal of the Good. He stresses, however, that establishing democracy is not easy.
