On Removing Certain Impediments to Democracy in the United States
Robert A. Dahl argues that the United States entered into five "historic commitments" that bear on the contemporary state of American democracy and its prospects and that in some respects those commitments are incompatible. He calls for making the different commitments more explicit so that the incompatibilities can be recognized and those that serve as obstacles to procedural democracy can be removed.
