      Democratic ideas did not reappear on a significant scale until the 17th century. The barbarian invasions and the fall of Rome in the 5th century A.D. produced a European society that was primarily concerned with security rather than with democratic institutions. This gave rise to the rigidly hierarchical systems of feudalism and manorialism. The idea is that the community will be at once regulated and free: the power exists, even while its representative cannot be pinpointed. Again, Tocqueville comes from a context in which it makes sense to speak of Administration with a capital A—a complex and highly centralized bureaucracy that defined the France of his time.
