First, it must be pointed out that even if there were a perfect way for democracy to be administered, it would still be utterly immoral and completely illegitimate. As Benjamin Franklin put it, democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. To put it even more bluntly, there’s another good example of true democracy in action: gang rape.
Despite the fact that Americans are constantly indoctrinated into the notion that democracy is great, and that it is the same as freedom, it’s all pure bunk. A majority can commit heinous evil just as easily, if not more easily, than a minority, and they have done so over and over again throughout history. When most people support an idea that is stupid and/or evil–which happens quite often–that idea doesn’t magically become intelligent or good. Likewise, when an idea is inherently righteous, it is not any less so because only a minority supports it–which also happens more often than not. The majority cannot, by voting, make something evil into something good, any more that they could make two plus two equal five by “voting” for that. In fact, democracy is worse than worthless, because it legitimizes and “legalizes” evil, simply because a majority advocates it.
