When such imbalances exist in a country, it is not advisable to market free democracy as it could allow ‘demagogues’ to seek advantage of the resentments of the majority and ‘ferment active ethno-nationalist movements’. ‘One size does not fit all’.
Thus, one particular model of market democracy cannot be applied to all countries. There are cultural, racial, traditional, structural and religious differences that exist within countries. In addition to this, there are differences between people on the basis of caste, race and ethnicity further creating imbalances within the society. Thus, in a society, where resentments between majority and minority groups are high, market democracy can become a catalyst for violent movements. Therefore, it is absolutely critical to analyse the ground realities in terms of social imbalances in order to avoid making democracy a catalyst in ethnic crimes.
