  1. Consensual versus majoritarian democracy
  2. The type of democracy in modern Germany

Our conception of the Federal Republic of Germany is very different from what it was only 15 years ago. Throughout much of its history, Germany was under the leadership of dictators and was never very comfortable with democracy. Germany's first experience with democracy occurred from 1918-1933 during the Weimar Republic. This economically deprived period of time was extremely unstable and gave the German people a negative perspective regarding democratic principles. After the fall of the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich was created and led by Adolf Hitler. Hitler's fascist and oppressive regime, which was known as the Nazi party, removed all signs of democracy and replaced that system with its polar opposite.
