Beyond Democracy?

Written by atuuschaaw Saturday, 08 April 2006

If you ever happened to end up in a vastly outnumbered minority group, and the majority voted that you must give up something as necessary to your life as water and air, would you comply? When it comes down to it, does anyone really believe in recognizing the authority of a group simply because they outnumber everyone else? We accept majority rule because we do not believe it will threaten us, and those it does threaten are already silenced before we can hear their misgivings.
