I'm not sure how that's any different from Hoppe's usage of the term. To
him, I believe, there's no difference between a democracy and a republic --
at least, not at this level of analysis.

What are the important/relevant differences between them in this context?
Do these speak against Hoppe's claims -- many of which seem based on the
American example. (E.g., affirmative action.)
