The average IQ is 100. That's not very high. Half the people have an IQ lower than 100. Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Justice is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. Deciding what should be done by a vote of everyone amounts to tyranny of the majority. The majority isn't very smart, isn't very well educated, and is ignorant of the issues. You really want them deciding what to do?
Look at our elections, national and state. All you have to do is pander to the IQ=100 majority and they will continue to vote you in. It's not based on a well-reasoned argument about what is right or reasonable. It is simply a matter of who will give you the most free stuff.
