"Doctrines that prevent people from understanding the cause of their social existence have great social value." –Marvin Harris
Modern democracy relies on the illusion that there is something special about majority consensus beyond the majority’s physical superiority if things were ever to turn violent.
The power of the majority is a matter of simple physics: greater collective mass.
The rules, laws, and social expectations of civilized existence rest upon a single moral principle: might makes right. This is as true today as it was in ancient Babylon.
