"seek to impose their minority views on the majority"

Which is how most progressive change occurs.
"Progressive" is a subjective term. I think some people like to describe themselves as "progressive" because it's self-congratulatory and theoretically hard to argue with - "You mean you don't believe in being progressive? Seriously?" A bit like defining your views as "enlightened".

Unless you simply want mob rule?
Ugly term, "mob rule". But what else is democracy, if not a form of mob rule? I'd argue that most of the world's nastier dictatorships have started out with a minority imposing their views on the majority.
