I see that we're back to using 'Democracy' as justification for whatever the contributor feels will be justified/enhanced/made more acceptable by so doing. As in every such instance, there is never an explanation/amplification as to what the term means or implies. Such usage may sound or look meaningful but, in actuality, it is meaningless. or, rather, it is a Humpty-Dumpty word, meaning whatever the author wants it to mean. Just as "Nationalism is the last refuge of the scoundrel", so 'Democracy' is the last resort quote of the failed argument.
