Beforehand, sorry for the rather long time without any new blog posts.
When criticizing current politics it is often argued that in a democracy the voting majority has supported various government interventions and that this ought to justify the interference.
Ayn Rand argues the opposite:
I object to the idea that people have the right to vote on everything. The traditional American system was a system based on the idea that majority will prevail only in public or political affairs and that it was limited by inalienable individual rights.
