It isn’t that the majority is mean. It’s that the greatest idiots tend to have the biggest mouths, the loudest, most convincing voices and claim to represent (without asking anybody. I’m sure nobody’s ever asked me) all the rest, (as well as ‘reality’ or ‘God’) who don’t speak in public, as they own no means to reach billions of people, like newspapers, tv stations, and co-operative political parties and other movements. Nor do they employ means to convince people, like brainwashology.
Then most others, in turn, after idiots speak on their behalf, even tend to repeat what is spoken on their behalf like. And the idiot’s projected will becomes all the rest’s projected will. And that reversed democracy is called democracy.
