"Democracy has always, throughout history, served as a gateway to despotism. This is primarily because Democracy is tantamount to 'mob rule,' or government by the majority. In a government ruled by the will of the majority -- a Democracy, the rights of the minority are not guaranteed and are often neglected or even ignored by those who hold power, most often in pursuit of keeping or maintaining that power."
