Freedom/Spengler: According to Spengler, central elements of freedom in modern democracy, whether it concerns the right to vote, the right of parliamentary representation or freedom of opinion and the press, represent nothing more than various media for exercising power in the hands of those who do not ostensibly govern a state, but actually rule it - precisely because, according to the findings of a vitalist approach to politics and history, they are the strongest, the 'liveliest' and thus also the most assertive.
