If millions of people believe false and stupid information, it does not suddenly make that information correct. It just means that many people are stupid and unable to discern fact from fiction.
If a large number of people wish to use a “simple majority” to impose rules and regulations upon a minority of people, this is NOT democracy, but is no different from the genocide imposed by Hitler upon minorities and upon the genocide imposed by Saddam Hussein upon the Kurdish people.
Just because a “simple majority” makes a decision which adversely impacts a group of people, does not validate the decision as one of democracy. The best example of this is: Dixie Jim Crow Laws imposed by a “simple majority” of white folks upon people with a different color of skin. Another example of this: denial of homosexual monogamous relationships and the legal contracts which define such relationships and allow people in those relationships to adopt children and create a family (also called same-sex marriage).
To invoke Jim Crow Laws and exclusive heterosexual marriage laws – or any laws that adversely impact a minority of people, there should be a UNANIMOUS decision by all involved with the issue. Period. Then true democracy has been practiced. So why do we waste our government tax dollars considering such stupid issues when there are more pressing issues at hand?
