Compromise
    #3611879 - 01/11/05 11:13 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

If 60% of a country believes x (say, has a positive stance on issue X) and 40% of a country believes not-x (that is a negative stance on issue X), then surely the will of the people (w) is:

w = 60x - 40x = 20x

Therefore, the will of the public is to be slightly positive on issue X. In a democracy, however, the 60x get their way, the government will be significantly positive on issue X.

Thoughts?

de?moc?ra?cy

1. Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives.
2. A political or social unit that has such a government.
3. The common people, considered as the primary source of political power.
4. Majority rule.
5. The principles of social equality and respect for the individual within a community.

There are two ways to get to the top of an oak tree: start climbing or sit on an acorn.

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?
