Tyranny of the majority!!!!!??? Tyranny of the minority through major media, public education.... indoctrination of the highest order. I spend a half hour truck ride home with my 13 and 12 year olds a lot of days hearing about what some bone head opinionated outspoken teacher said in class, typically a opinion that had nothing to do with that classes subject, and giving these two facts and common sense rebuttal. It’s a charter school and for the most part it blows the doors off our local public school but the last few years (after a republican got the whitehouse) the true colors have come out in a bold way. Just give kids the facts and true history... it shouldn’t be this tuff.

Well that makes more sense then. A true democracy is "tyranny of the majority" and can be worse than the tyranny of a despotic dictator. We would definitely want to teach kids about the evils of the tyranny of the majority and explain to them why we are a constitutional, democratic republic and not a pure democracy. We need to teach them about how the constitution and bill of rights are meant to protect the basic human freedoms of the minority populations.

In this case, I would say that the last two sentences are examples of tyranny of the majority and the first three are not. The last two seem to indicate that the majority would vote to institute laws, regulations, or ordinances that would violate the basic civil rights of a minority population. That's the kind of crap that goes on in China.

Really, how far is the US from seeing Christian churches being taxed and regulated by a majority non-Christian population? I hope our kids learn that this is wrong before it is too late.

Really, it seems like there may be some here who would have benefitted from learning the concept of "tyranny of the majority" while they were in school.

We conservative will not at all enjoy experiencing the tyranny of the majority once we are in the minority! It seems to be coming very soon.
