    So no, it is not true anymore.
    Democracy's highest value that without it a state cannot be called a democracy is the people's rule.
    Are you suggesting that the US, for example, is not a true democracy?

    The US has never been a true democracy. True democracy is just tyranny by majority rule.

    The US is supposed to be a representative republic. A form of democracy. Career politicians and public apathy have made certain that the Republic no longer works as it was intended.

    A true democracy also has a law that's called "the law to prevent majority's tyranny" or something like that.
    I'm serious, I've actually studied the issue quite a long time ago.

    I just find it highly amusing that people think passing a law to ban suicide is going to actually accomplish anything.

    ...And? I think you're confused. I was not accusing you of being one of the people I was referring to. I merely quoted your post because it was the first post in this thread.
