The article describes the key aspects of John Stuart Mill’s political theory. Putting emphasis on those sides of the theory that are weakly reflected in the historiography and revealing significant differences of the liberal democracy elaborated by Mill from the one established nowadays, M.Momot is trying to prove that such discrepancies are by no means caused by the lack of “foresight” by Mill who created his model as nothing else but an alternative to a range of attitudes that afterwards have turned into the prevalent ones. Momot supposes that it is predominance of these very attitudes and ignoration of Mill’s warnings against “rampant” democracy and liberalism that at least part of the problems that liberal democracy has been facing in the last years is rooted in.
