The Majority Cannot Give Consent for the Minority
The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Being Free“…
“Democracy is based on the idea that the
majority can give consent for the minority.
But consent doesn’t work like that.”

“Yo, Dawg! We heard that you don’t like the tyranny of the majority over minority groups…
So, we legitimized the authority of an ultra-minority through a voting majority, so they can tyrannically rule over everybody, accordingly, while you formally select the next elect minority of tyranny to fully control your humanity, in perpetuity!”
