The alternatives are seen to be a return to military rule or a collapse into populist chaos. Marshall spoke of. As Laurence Whitehead’s sombre conclusion puts it: ‘The choice would be between a stunted version of liberal democracy that works, or a generous vision of social democracy that remains a mirage (the Chilean Constitution of 1980 versus the Brazilian Constitution of 1988)’ (Whitehead 1992:154).
