Sample text

Consequently, in liberal democracies, such decisions are being made in a manner incompatible with the cultivation of citizens autonomy. If the government does impose its perception of what is valuable, then this will infringe on the autonomy of the citizens, as they will not be self-determining. In contrast, secondary associations in civil society are much closer to citizens and could therefore provide a more suitable location for governance. Chapters 3 to 6 of this book, then, propose an associational democracy, grounded upon perfectionism, on the basis that collective self-compulsion is legitimate, providing this compulsion is democratic.

The state will always, it seems, coerce, manipulate and seduce, even if it tries not to, as these phenomena can manifest themselves as unintended consequences that alter people’s perception of the merits of the various options available when making a decision, whether taxing, banning, legalising or subsidising (Waldron 1989: 1135; Sher 1997: 66). It does seem likely that a government’s programme will be conducted on non-neutral reasons – that is, what it thinks are the merits of particular forms of behaviour.

Therefore, new information can bring us to review and amend previously formed preferences, and a lack of relevant information can inhibit self-reflection. In this sense, uninformed preferences are not completely ‘authentic’ preferences, as they are not necessarily fully intended. This also means that being autonomous is ‘open ended and vague’, making it difficult to say when a person is sufficiently informed to make an autonomous decision. This causes practical problems highlighted effectively by Elster’s (1976) mushroom-gatherer.
