    Then why do you even bother to identify "majority" and "minority"? Why not take ALL your candidates for presidency and just make them all presidents? Imagine the bliss!

    If you are right, can I come into your country and make you all to burn your Bibles and turn to Islam, not because you want to, but because I want it to be so? I will be in minority of one, surely my right to make you do so will be equal to the right of all of you not to do it? Wait, hold on a minute, if my right cancels your right, then who wins? Are you or are you not going to turn into Muslims? Because if you do, then MY right will be superior to yours, if you will not, then YOUR right will be superior to mine, -- either way, they will not be held equal.
    WTF are you even talking about. This was in no way what Catz was talking about.

    Sometimes a candidate with a plurality vote wins. (Not a majority.)

    Catz was telling me that in your country the will of majority and minority is held equal. I found it grotesquely funny, hence my illustration.

    That's because you didn't understand. The rights of the majority and the rights of the minority are held equal.

    Injustice is in the suppression of exercise of rights. It's an absolute scale on this one.
