Democracy and the Majority Rule are not the truth-seeking tools.
I was lucky to have had an elementary school teacher demonstrate it to us.
He asked a question, to which all but 2 of the students gave one answer. He asked the 46 kids why they are right and the other two are wrong. He let them go on for a while, long enough for the majority to get cocky.
Then he revealed to us that the majority answer was incorrect.
I wonder how different the world would be today if every child has this experience.
Because we confuse democracy with search of truth.
