Nothing can ever be truly democratic because elite groups always emerge.
Depends. The notion that all humans should hold equal rights is a fallacy, but to some extent humans are naturally hierarchical.
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…
