E-Ching For The Day

The majority should rule even when they are wrong.

I reiterate:

"Another conception of democracy is that it is majority rule and is justified under utilitarian reasoning. The advantages of democracy seen under this conception is that the majority of the population are satisfied with the governance they live under. The disadvantage is that the minority live under the power of the majority sometimes termed the tyranny of the majority, or mob rule. This can lead to the marginalisation of large portions of a population if the will of the majority is not restrained by a strong and just constitution and legal system."
