Someone here Posted December 6, 2022 Share Posted December 6, 2022 Which is more important..democracy or freedom? Many people say democracy is good, but it means that the majority controls the minority. How can democracy be good if it means that the minority lose their freedom? I'd give the nod to democracy, defined in its root sense as the rule of the people, or the government created by election in which every adult citizen can vote. I'd prefer to live in a democracy where at least I have voting rights than in a governmentless anarchy where, you might say, I have unlimited rights but no protection. However do we really need to concern ourselves with the relative importance of democracy and freedom? We need both. The importance is in the balance between them. What do you guys think ?
