Un grupo humillado que busca la restitución de su dignidad tiene mucho más peso emocional que las personas que sólo buscan una ventaja económica
1 La política de la dignidad En algún momento a mediados de la segunda década del siglo XXI, la política mundial cambió drásticamente. El período desde principios de la década de 1970 hasta mediados de la década de 2000 fue testigo de lo que Samuel Huntington denominó la «tercera ola» de democratización, ya que el…
