Nothing can ever be truly democratic because elite groups always emerge.

True. The elite groups were just a few common men with a goal.

If they were “elite groups” then how were the also “common men”???

Depends. The notion that all humans should hold equal rights is a fallacy, but to some extent humans are naturally hierarchical.

that said, all humans are of equal value.

All humans DO hold equal rights. These are merely impeded.

sorry for the delay.

anyway, how is the thought of equal rights a fallacy? it seems to me the philosophies which gave rise to the ‘rights’ paradigm hold that rights derive from natural, universal obligations to one-another for the sake of consistency if nothing else.
that aside, the OP was about democracy specifically.
@loveinlife , true dat. and there is nothing intrinsically wrong with such groups. there is just a tendency for it to get out of hand…
