Louis Asbury November 20, 2006 PWAD Lecture For 11/27: Read John Owen, “How Liberalism produces democratic peace.” Pp. 116-154 Kant’s argument for perpetual peace failed because large sections of Kant’s population (women and economically dependent) could not vote. Democratic Peace: Democracies don’t fight each other . And particularly aggressive against non democracies. Democracies are even more disposed to not fight each other than non-democracies. Academic studies in 1980’s Michael Doyle Found that historically Democracies don’t fight one another. What is it that makes this happen? Pp.191-197 Layne (Realist) Attacks the alleged fact that history shows us that democracies never fight each other. 1. N is relatively small. There haven’t been enough cases of democracy to prove this theory. The test sample is too small to be conclusive. 2. Wars are relatively rare. A study of history will show us that states fighting one another Tend to be states of close proximity. States on opposite ends of the earth are lees likely.
