The Point of Democracy
The whole point of democracy is that people are allowed to have different opinions, preferences and points of view, and that is okay. And what makes democracy work is people respecting the fact that not everyone is going to agree with them or vote like them. Without this respect and acceptance of other points of view, it just starts degrading into warring factions who want power for themselves. And that is not consistent with the ideals of democracy. That is consistent with authoritarianism and social conflict.
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
