Contemporary digital technologies make us rethink the basic concepts of authoritarianism and democracy. The article contains descriptions and conditions of existence of both digitalized authoritarianism and e-democracy, which often use common political methods (for example, e-participation). The author highlights the fragility of the democracy concept in the digital era and represents certain conditions of its emergence and effective implementation. The way of e-democracy emergence and development (via civil society platforms or from the state level) is to be the crucial one for its further sustainability and duration of implementation.
