    'democracy' is the going thing in today's international scene, in all its forms and immitations. if a country is not 'democratic', then it is forced to be by the majority. if it refuses then it is shunned, and labelled 'criminal' or 'rogue'. ze'ev is telling us, in convoluted prose, that israel is a 'modern democracy', but that's not what the people of israel want. by 'internalised', i assume he means that beaurocracy, commerce, and the community either take no notice of it, or are unaware of its ramifications. the idea is to eventually do away with any laws which are 'unpalatable', and simply do what you like. and after a while this has another name, ie anarchy.
