Why democracy lead to totalitarianism in Germany and not in France
features such as the system has parts that are necessarily related to each other but are merged to
form a whole system. The theory also operates in an output-input within a system which
influences it and as a result, offers a feedback. The theory's main aim to maintain order within a
system which as a result will promote integrity in the system.
Another theory that used in comparative politics is the democratic theory and casual
methodology (Lichbach, 2013). The theory mainly focusses on how democratic a system is. It
combines the peoples' will, freedoms, their representation and their representatives to form a
system. The theory helps one understand the countries or states that respect the peoples' will and
those that do not. It also studies the consequences of democracy in different environments.
Another theory that is largely used in comparative e politics is the comparative foreign
policy analysis. The theory studies the process the decision making on foreign policy. The theory
offers a framework that captures the politics core. The theory explores what causes a country or
state behavior and the implications of the behaviors (Beasley, 2017).
Developmental theory is another theory that can be employed in the study of comparative
politics. After world war1, there emerged new states that prompted economic development.
Countries that were highly involved in the war wanted to regain their economic powers and
outshine others countries. Comparative politics was the main case of this competition.
Cultural theory is another theory that can be used in comparative politics. Political culture
involves the beliefs related to politics, symbols and in some cases, the values that define the
political system of a nation, state or region. Parochial and participatory political cultures are
examples of the cultural theory. This theory was pioneered by Gabriel Almond who based his
research on individuals' attitude and thinking towards their governments.
