Three Authoritarian Threats
The state is the embodiment of the People’s will if the state is just. The state must be separated from three non-political entities that try to seep into the political sphere whenever possible. In order for the state to be the sole possession of the People, these three entities must be kept out of the political arena. These three threats to democracy and the People’s state are religion, business, and the military.
