What is a Democracy? A democracy is ruled by the tyranny of the majority. Democracy is an idealized utopian concept of a fair and just society of universal freedoms. Democratic practices presume a balance between elected power and the will of the people. Protections of the individuals’ rights are not guaranteed under a democracy. The majority rules to benefit itself at the expense of the minority. An example of a democracy today is Egypt. The majority voting block of the Egyptian society is Islamic. Christians are the minority. Under this Islam rule, Christians are allowed to be gunned down in the streets or bombed in their churches. During the course of the “fiscal cliff” debacle, many talking heads spewed forth the repeated declaration of democracy. Evidentially, the lawmakers upon Capital Hill do not have clue as to their representation of all the people they were elected to office to serve in our Republic.
