A Vulgar Superstition

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following artwork, which I originally shared to my wall in February of 2016, in my post, “The Majority Cannot Give Consent for the Minority,” and decidedly re-shared it, along with a new commentary…

My Original Commentary:

“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!”
(Artwork by Rayn, and originally located here)

My New Commentary: A vulgar superstition.

(note: though I previously shared a different picture of this quote in February of 2016, within my post, “The Majority Cannot Give Consent for the Minority,” I still felt compelled to offer up an alternative commentary when I saw it again, due to the inspiring nature of these words)
