After highlighting how, from a universalist point of view, the diffusion of democracy is to be regarded as a good (and underscoring the backwardness of political studies on the subject in the process), the author asks whether it is actually easy to spread democracy worldwide. It would only appear to be possible if states were prepared to recognise that their traditionally inviolable sovereignty is now much reduced and eroded. This would cease to be a danger in world in which democratic principles were shared universalistically, and would ultimately turn into a factor of safety and peace.
