Abstract

A response to “Death of Democracy: An Inevitable Possibility under Capitalism’’ by Rajan Gurukkal (EPW, 25 August 2018) seeks to foreground the inherent contradiction between genuine democracy and capitalism. Realising the possibility of system-transcendence therefore demands an organised challenge to the exploitative capital–labour relation.

Keywords: Capitalism, Democracy, Capital-Labour Relation

JEL Classification: P12, P13, P14, P16, P26
