The phrase tyranny of the majority (NOT MINORITY) (also: tyranny of the masses), used in discussing systems of democracy and majority rule, is a criticism of the scenario in which decisions made by a majority under that system would place that majority's interests so far above a dissenting individual's interest that the individual would be actively oppressed, just like the oppression by tyrants and despots. The phrase "tyranny of the majority" originates with Alexis de Tocqueville in his Democracy in America (1835, 1840) and was further popularized by John Stuart Mill, who cites de Tocqueville, in On Liberty (1859); the Federalist Papers frequently refer to the concept, though usually under the name of "the violence of majority faction," particularly in Federalist 10. You obviously have no idea what a democracy truly is and what it takes legally for the continuation of one. That's why we have a Bill of Rights in America, to protect each individual, especially a person with a minority opinion, from the will and evil of the majority. Please read the "Federalist Papers" to gain a clearer understanding of Democracy in action. Perhaps your Knesset members each need a copy as well.
