I have never claimed to be wiser than everyone else, just wiser than the misguided tens of millions you have referenced.Andres wrote:Oh, I forgot.john wrote:That's a lot of misguided people.
You are so much wiser than everyone else.You have perverted democracy to be a dictatorship of the majority, or even a dictatorship of the minority.An interesting way of expressing incompatibility with representative democracy.
Using your standard of democracy, there was nothing wrong with such actions as
+ incarcerating and stealing the property/businesses of Americans of Japanese decent during WWII
+ enslaving negro and other people in the US for centuries
+ slaughtering native americans
+ incarcerating illegal drug users
+ starting the second 'gulf war'
+ the US entering world war I based upon lies, whose result was the most direct cause of world war 2 in Europe
solely because the majority was in favour of those actions.
The list can go on and on of morally unjustifiable policies and actions which the majority agreed with.
You will denounce each of these actions as abhorrent, say you are or were not in favour of them and will (yet again) refuse to see the implications and direct consequences of your position.
Your version of 'democracy':
Yes, I believe I have described all of those actions as abhorrent in one or more of my posts, nor do I find any inconsistency with the views I have expressed (in many posts) regarding representative democracy. Simply put, I do not support dictatorship of the majority or the minority. For clarity's sake, suggest you review the contents of my posts regarding my definition of representative democracy.
