“I am a democrat because I believe in the Fall of Man... A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that every one deserved a share in the government.

The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that they’re not true. . . . I find that they’re not true without looking further than myself. I don’t deserve a share in governing a hen-roost. Much less a nation. . . .

The real reason for democracy is just the reverse. Mankind is so fallen that no man can be trusted with unchecked power over his fellows. Aristotle said that some people were only fit to be slaves. I do not contradict him. But I reject slavery because I see no men fit to be masters.”

C S Lewis

Tman, this is by far your more moronic vote. 6 are on the contrary one of the most anti-democratic type (if not the most), because of their cult of leadership they are prone to criticize this system and be advocate of dictatorship or monarchy, or be advocate of policy that value security above democracy (like Bush's 6 actions). democracy is based on the trust of the rationality of citizen, trust that 6 tend to lack. "following the opinion of the most" may sound like 6 if you don't think about what imply the belief in democracy (especially liberal democracy).
