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“…

Rayn:

"Democracy is based on the idea that the majority can give consent for the minority. But consent doesn't work like that."

“Democracy is based on the idea that the
majority can give consent for the minority.
But consent doesn’t work like that.”

Jordan K.: I want to post this photo every day of my life. I might just print this out and start putting it on telephone poles.

“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)

Yo Dawg!

I originally posted the following “variation on a meme” that I created onto my Facebook wall…

Finally Accept the Fact that the Individual is the Smallest Minority on Earth!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Freedom and Liberty for All,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“A society that does not recognize that each individual has values of his own, which he is entitled to follow, can have no respect for the dignity of the individual, and cannot really know freedom.” – F. A. Hayek

My Commentary: Never lose sight of the fact that the Individual is “the smallest minority on Earth”!

Who Could Possible Run Your Life Better Than a Small, Elect Group of Morally-Bankrupt Plutocrats?

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after they posted artwork being shared the page, “Libertarian Party“…

Genaire:

“Libertarian. The radical notion that you are not the property of anyone else, including the government.” – Tony Baize (All individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.)
(Learn more about the LP and its values of Liberty at lp.or/platform)

Rayn: What a elitist and extremist viewpoint! Do you really believe that you can run your life better than a small, elect group of morally-bankrupt plutocrats? Just who do you think you are?

The Government Can – Tim Hawkins:

Stephen K.: 90% of the US Congress are millionaires.

Rayn: It’s a little over half, actually.

More Than Half the Members of Congress Are Millionaires (Jan. 2014):

This is a small rise from the 2011 figures:

47% of Congress Members Millionaires — a Status Shared by Only 1% of Americans (Nov. 2011 article):

Stephen K.: Someone spread disinformation to me 🙁

Democracy: A Political System Wherein the Majority Votes Away the Rights of Minority Groups

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “TRUTHgasm,” and originally posted it to the wall of family, along with commentary…

"Gun control: Because as long as we get to vote, what could possibly go wrong?"

“Gun control: Because as long as we get to vote, what could possibly go wrong?”

My Commentary: “No, no. I don’t think you understand… We voted on it, and the majority approved. That makes it legit. Minority groups, you say? Ha! They have no rights, here.”
