It's a game of numbers and you must appeal to as many as possible or to those who will yield you the highest number so as to win. Once in power, you're supposed to accommodate the minority's views. Compromise where needed.

Yes.. one is SUPPOSED not MUST accommodate the minority. In our case the minority are threatening violence.
That's the problem- trying to redefine democracy. It could be detrimental in the future where we have a pre-Rwandan genocide scenario where the minority were rulling and the majority had an uprising. It could even be a bad cycle where: minority rule- majority get disgruntled and cry for democracy, overturn the govt then majority rule- minority get disgruntled and cry for democracy. At this point, there's so much hatred and divisiveness, I don't see healing. It's going to be a vicious tradition every 5 years. Why stay with a spouse who is just full of contempt for you? Everyone is insisting their views/needs MUST be met. Nobody wants to compromise.
