The glue she is smilingly squeezing from the bottle at the jacket has an enticing three-d quality.

3. Radical pluralism. Radical-pluralist or agonistic theories of democracy refer to theories in which the public sphere is conceived as a site for political struggle and conflict, and not only as a site for the formation of common will or consensus. Radical democratic pluralism provides a fundamental critique of the deliberative approach to the public sphere and democracy. Each of these three approaches offers a distinct framework for understanding media pluralism. For liberal pluralists it is the marketplace of ideas and individual choice; for deliberative democrats pluralism is a means to improve the epistemic quality of public deliberation and discursive reconciliation of disagreement; and finally, radical pluralists criticize both as unnecessary idealizations and instead focus on the continuous contestation of power relations and hegemonic structures.
