The American system of government is the most elevated, the most moral system yet invented or discovered. Majority Rule however, by definition, gives the largest group control over the individual. Moral people concerned with justice and freedom invented a process to protect the minorities and the smallest minority is you.
The American system is not a democracy. American government is a Constitutional Republic. A democracy, if you attach meaning to terms, is a system of unlimited majority rule; the classic example is ancient Athens and the symbol of it is the fate of Socrates, who was put to death legally, because the majority didn’t like what he was saying, even though he had initiated no force and had violated no one’s rights.
Democracy, in short, is a form of collectivism, which denies the Rights of the individual. The majority can do whatever it wants with no restrictions. In principle, the democratic government is all-powerful. Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation; it is not a form of freedom . . . .
The American system was and is a constitutionally limited republic, restricted to the protection of individual rights. Majority rule only applies to lesser details, such as the selection of certain personnel. But the majority has no say over the basic principles governing the government. It has no power to ask for or gain the infringement of individual rights.
Democracy submerges the individual to the collective, to the majority. Democracy sacrifices the individual to the state, the collective, the majority.
Germany invented the National Socialist Party designed to sacrifice the individual to the State, to the Motherland, the Rodina or to the fatherland. Racism was central to Nazism. The Nazis propagated the idea of a Democracy, a majority called the “people’s community”.
Russia powerized Lenin’s communists, the commune, and legitimized it using the majority, the collective. No one can witness WWII and say not enough people were sacrificed to the collectives.
