7 The first criticisms of public sphere theory tackled the way Habermas connected his theory of the public sphere with so-called white male publics. Landes (1990, 1995) showed how “Habermas’s formulation effaces the way in which the bourgeois public sphere from the outset worked to rule out all the interests that would not or could not lay claim to their own universality” 44 CHAPTER 2 (1995:98). Thus, women and blacks have been excluded from what became known as the bourgeois public sphere. This critique has important consequences for democratic theory.

Lipset’s empirical correlation led to a theory according to which the breakdown of democracy could be attributed to the inability of recently constituted political systems to cope with the conflicts generated by the uneven distribution of wealth (Lipset, 1959). 12 In the postwar period, particularly through the “second reverse wave of democratization,” democratic elitism failed to elaborate a theory of late democratization or re-democratization. There were four major reasons for its inability to do so.

Democratic elitism’s evident inability to explain Latin American authoritarianism using the tools it developed to analyze democracy in North America and Europe led some of its representatives to explain this failure through the introduction of a third element, an economic variable able to explain what its theoretical assumptions could not.
