A People(s) democracy By Jeroen Zandberg
eBook (PDF): $3.78
This books objective is to fit democracy to human nature and come to a new kind of democracy; a People(s) democracy. Currently, people are assumed to adapt to the system, which causes many structural... More > problems in society that can never be solved without redefining the system. Many are searching for their Self whereby we see other people as obstacles to be overcome in order to reach this goal. This implies that others are a limitation to us and our development. The ideal society is in such case a ‘society’ of only one individual. A search whereby everyone tries to find himself without including others leads to a situation in which no-one recognizes each other because everyone is speaking his own ‘language’. However, a person is not an atomized individual but an integral part of the environment. By searching for yourself by excluding others you deny the essential characteristics that determine what it means to be human, because it is only possible to find yourself when you include others.< Less

The Philosophy of Ubuntu and the Origins of Democracy By Jeroen Zandberg
eBook (ePub): $8.64
This book deals with the African philosophy of Ubuntu and uses the latest scientific insights into human nature to show how to understand the human condition and best organize society The philosophy... More > of Ubuntu states that people are by nature directed at others and that they can only be fully human when they are recognized by others. Ubuntu therefore provides for the best possible solution for the social contract theory. In Western and Eastern philosophy all connections are imposed from the outside causing a chicken-and-the-egg problem with social contract theories. These theories state that individuals enter an agreement with each other in order to live together. Unfortunately a contract can only have value if there is already a morality present but in both Western and Eastern philosophy this morality is not innately present making it impossible to ever come to a contract. This problem is not present with Ubuntu because there is an innate tendency to recognize others as part of the Self< Less
De Nieuwe Politiek By Jeroen Zandberg

‘De Nieuwe Politiek´ bespreekt de grondslagen van de democratie en de wijze waarop het in Nederland wordt toegepast. Door discussie in het publieke domein komt men tot een waarheid. In... More > onze democratie is die meerderheid niet gebaseerd op de numerieke meerderheid maar op de meerderheid in het publieke domein. Door nu de gewone burger uit te sluiten van het debat wordt hij een minderheid en zal de samenleving hem niet representeren. Het boek geeft argumenten aan de ‘zwijgende meerderheid’ die niet zozeer zwijgt omdat ze het overal mee eens is, maar zwijgt omdat ze niet de beschikking hebben over de juiste argumenten en zo overbluft worden door de heersende elite, waardoor zij een minderheid zijn in het publieke domein en daardoor weinig invloed kunnen uitoefenen op de wijze waarop de samenleving nu en in de toekomst zou moeten worden ingericht. Daarnaast geeft het boek een verklaring en mogelijke oplossingen voor het democratische tekort.< Less

De Filosofie van de Nieuwe Politiek By Jeroen Zandberg
eBook (PDF): $12.56
Dit boek laat zien wat de democratische tekortkomingen zijn van de hedendaagse politiek en geeft een filosofische onderbouwing voor een alternatief. Waar de oude politiek bestaat uit een verzameling... More > elites die de macht monopoliseert ten gunste van zichzelf, waarbij de belangen van de rest van de bevolking soms overeenstemmen met deze elitebelangen en soms niet, biedt de nieuwe politiek de mogelijkheid om de politiek werkelijk te democratiseren en de burgers als autoriteit te aanvaarden in plaats van de macht van de elite. Argumenten worden aangedragen aan de zwijgende meerderheid die niet zozeer zwijgt omdat ze het overal mee eens is, maar omdat ze niet de beschikking hebben over de juiste argumenten en zo overbluft worden door de heersende elite, waardoor zij een minderheid zijn in het publieke domein en daardoor weinig invloed kunnen uitoefenen op de wijze waarop de samenleving nu en in de toekomst zou moeten worden ingericht.< Less
