I believe it to be the simple fact that the minority is often the group that complains the most and the loudest. I'm sure this has happened in
politics relatively frequently, and in many other areas. And rarely does it work out for the best, although in certain cases it might. This is tied in
with the political correctness nonsense. A minority of the population decides that the genders male and female are not enough, and thus we have an
example of the minority pushing an idea that only affects a small number of people. Something like equality of the races is totally different as well.
Take the Civil Rights Movement. It was not like there was only a small percentage of the population pushing for equality and change. No, there was an
actual meaningful number of people, and even if there were more people against them than for them, I still don't really consider that a minority of
people...since the numbers are so large.
So maybe we should approach each problem individually, because attempting to lump all of the differing instances that could be construed as minority
versus majority will only lead to problems. One of the best examples is the "1%" and the politicians as well. They control what goes on in the US,
and other countries respectively, much more than many people realize. People do not realize how much of their lives are governed by decisions made by
the elite. Take gas prices for instance. Has anyone ever looked at the yearly profits made by these large corporations? It is absolutely astounding to
say the least, the amount of PROFIT alone that we are talking about here.
Then think of what a small number of people there truly are in deciding to screw over the population with gas prices. And anyone who would argue that
the people are being screwed over, I will say you are wrong, and point to their profits as the only evidence needed to prove my point. But like I
said, there are many different examples that could be used, from all walks of life, and from all corners of the country and globe.
