"Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch."
Democracy - more honestly called "mobocracy" – is a political system based upon the concept that the majority always rules...
...because they outnumber the minority, and can beat them up.
Never doubt this: "Democracy" is rooted in pure brute force:
Every "fundamentalist" blue law imposed on a minority with differing beliefs assumes that the unbelievers will be forced to obey.
Every majority election of a politician forces unwelcome "representation" upon someone whose views that politician diametrically opposes.
Democracy assumes that three illiterate morons are somehow wiser than one Einstein-level genius... Simply because there are more of them; they outnumber him, and can force their wills upon him.
Democracy says it is acceptable to take money or property from a nonconsenting individual because he is outnumbered, a minority.
Democracy in its purest form is best illustrated by the robbery of a helpless, little, old lady by a gang of thugs. It must be okay: The gang "majority" out-voted the woman.
