Though Wulffmorgenthaler raises a valid point in this comic, the world population of human beings, whom have a healthy developed democracy, does not have a majority of 75 % of filthy rednecks.

Point aside for being too literal with the comic though, this is not how modern democracy work. Only in the most absurd countries does democracy work, that directly, that 'Just because the majority thinks so, it's going to be like that'. Only at it's birth, in ancient Greece, were democracy at the dangers of what you've expressed.

That's just... no. Wrong. And luckily, non-existent. The modern day scheme in politics is filled with experts, studies, medias and even companies, literally living on this, that all serve the purpose to criticize these expressions of the majority. All these layers of society works to filter retarded ideas away, so to speak.

Other than that, there's politicians. Those guys who get paid, to know what the **** is the best for the country. The guys with the real power, in the comic, the power to actually push you into the volcano or to cook the sheep. And if you are to think, that they're just puppets nodding to what the majority thinks, you're so wrong. Of course, they want to, because that's how you get votes, but they're politicians for Christ's sake, they seek to get the power. And they prolly lie. Often. That's because they want to represent the average joe's opinion and voice. But they know. They know that Joe is wrong in his opinion about the volcano. Because, they have an education that proves they know their **** about politics and society. And they work and correspond with those medias, experts and firms that juggle around with the majority's opinion.

Simply put, you are classifying how a direct democracy works, whilst we in modern times have indirect democracy.

TL;DR - **** YOU, YOU'RE WRONG.

no, they're in on it, they want to portray it as much as possible in the media so we can "accept" it with subliminal messaging

im pretty sure they are not gonna higher people to sit there and read your emails word by word and look at your picture word by word... they're just gonna scan everything every once in a while to see any terrorist keywords and terrorist activity like if you have a chat with your friend on how to build an explosive or something

It's not so much about me personally, but about the people who can and have been abused by things like this.
