John Dewey bases this paper on issues of modern democracy expressed in the book “The Phantom Public” by Walter Lippmann, and “The Public and its Problems”. The analysis will compare the two works, out of which definitions and problems of democracy are debated. The parallels and differences are then put in perspective in the discussion, which will apply the thoughts and ideas of Dewey and Lippmann, in context to the Danish EU-vote the 3rd of December, 2015. The conclusion shows the validity of applying the thoughts of Dewey and Lippmann, expressed in the 1920’s USA, and how issues facing democracy then, can be put in perspective with today’s democracy.
