Abstract The dominant liberal democratic discourse maintains that its ideals and institutions mitigate recourse to political violence. “The ballot replaces the bullet” is the largely unchallenged conventional wisdom that reflects a complex set of assertions and assumptions. This article critically examines the key contentions and conceptual building blocks of this discourse, with a focus on the Democratic Peace Thesis. The upshot is that liberal democracy's capacity to mitigate political violence may be significantly limited to that which is generally assumed. © 2011 Informa plc
