For Arendt, the clearest way of its realization was in the polis Greek, where work was set in the private space of the home , with all the consequences of despotism, while the action took place in the public space of the agora. This public place was the one of the active vita , of the communication, the conformation and the political freedom between equals. On the contrary, according to Arendt, during the Middle Ages a displacement took place on the basis of Christian dogmatics.
In it, the element of artisan or artistic manufacture was valued above philosophical thought and political action. The man became the Homo faber , that is, the creator of an artificial world. Arendt criticizes Western Christian philosophy. Although most philosophers expressed themselves on political issues, practically none took immediate part of the political discourse.

Its benchmark is the Ancient Greece , in particular, the time of Socratic dialogue. According to his view, the lost spaces of the modified political must be anchored in the present and, with this, to try to make fertile the capacities of the free individuals who think and act in a political way, and who try to distinguish each other.
It criticizes the societies that emerged from those revolutions.
It recognizes these as the possibility of beginning something new and the common action of the human being. For this question, part of Thomas Jefferson who, after his term as the third president of the United States , reflected in his correspondence on what happened.

According to Jefferson, after the American Revolution and the introduction of the Constitution , there was no institution in which the people could contribute anything to public affairs. The ancestral relationship between rulers and ruled had been maintained. Before and during the American Revolution the town could actively participate in political events in townhalls , town halls. The immigrants made good use of that possibility.
However, after the Revolution, people retreated more and more into their private lives, pursued their private interests and were less interested in public affairs. The representative democracy is not able to let the people participate in political life. Based on the experiences after World War I , it said that the multiparty system is still less attractive than the two — party system English or American, as it keeps inside the character of the one — party dictatorship. He describes the councils as peaceful, nonpartisan, and interested in building a new state.
The parties , whether left-wing or right-wing or revolutionary, saw the councils and soviets strong competition, and so they provoked agitation against them, and in the end they always had the possibility of annihilating them with the help of the state.
