Complexity and modern state

18 Oct

The state as conceived in modernity, precisely because it did not exist aoEstadoModernobefore, is not eternal and can undergo profound transformations so that the society holds the control of the power that it transfers by the democratic vote, it is sensible that today we need evolution.

The idealist construct, which is grounded in individual rights, must more and more give way to collective and social rights, some proclaimed in the French revolution as equality and fraternity have never been achieved, this is one of the limits of the Modern State.

But the most sensitive in times of social media, where social networks (which are human) are empowered, is what democracy is, in the sense of legitimately representing the rights of the majority, first because there is the right of minorities, it is necessary to tolerate this coexistence, and secondly, it is more fundamental that in transferring the right we are after the democratic process, deceived by the defenders of “just” and “social” causes, in exchange for their particular interests or lobbies.

This social complexity, that social media only makes their demands and roots nuanced, still requires a respect for the legal limits as we pointed out in the previous post of this blog, the so-called ideologies and discourses of hatred.

The state as conceived by Hegel possesses an ethicity (Hegel’s concept differs from ethics), where it is the “reality in the act of the objective moral idea – moral spirit as a substantial will revealed, clear to itself, which knows itself and thinks and realizes what he knows, and because he knows and because he knows “(p. 257), where there is a” self-conscious ethical substance “which is clearly more an idealistic concept than an apodic truth.

Hence the objective moral idea that Hegel intended to achieve with the State, with many examples in present-day governments, has clearly shown to be an idealist model for concealing human subjectivities which are also ethical rights such as religiosity and culture place of each people or nation concept, for example, rejected by Bush and other xenophobic governments.

The element of subjectivity which for Hegel was the “spirit,” was also the Spirit of the Laws of Montesquieu, it is this self-conscious substantiality, it is actually the “autonomy of the State” that becomes a subject of abstract logical categories and submit to the concrete reality of the existing subjects, people inserted in their cultures.

The modern state is not eternal and needs to be rethought.
