  • Werner Sombart


Given the extent to which public life in modern states is being organised on a more complicated basis and the extent to which the democratisation of the system of government is increasing, it is becoming more and more difficult for political ideas to be put forward otherwise than in the framework of a party organisation. This is undoubtedly closer to the truth in the United States than it is in any other political commonwealth. The United States is certainly the only large state with a really democratic system of government where political affairs are made even more complicated by its being federally organised.
