This chapter demonstrates how framed democracy's liberal, financial, and security measures regulate one another in order both to conserve our current “lack of emergencies” and to impose necessary emergencies. Framed democracy has become the completion of science's liberal ideal of an objectivity able to avoid alterations, shocks, and disruptions. If Western capitalist democracies are excessively armed, this is the case not only in order to conserve their dominion in the world but also because they no longer have any definite opponent. As we have seen in the past decades, the establishment of democratic free-market capitalist states was not only violent but also ineffective, considering the dissatisfaction that most Western citizens declare today. These dissatisfactions have reached such levels that the institutions designed to detect social discontent are no longer limited to the United Nations, but have expanded to states' ministries of defense.
