On a guarded tablet.Very interesting read.  This concept of the majority always being right is leading to a certain confusion in the peoples' minds which stands in need of clarification and adherence. 

In politics today the choice of the majority translates into the 'rule' of the land because it's the selection of this majority that results in picking those few who shape the destiny of the community, even though those few handpicked ones often don't reflect the thoughts of the majority.  Neither the quality nor the logical correctness of the majority matters because that isn't considered relevant as per the standards of this concept.  For this reason, the idea of the much talked about democracy is a mixture of benefits and drawbacks.  It's not all 'peaches and cream.'

In regard to Monothistic spiritual wisdom and genuine perceptive intellectualism, it's much the opposite.  This awesome path has always been adorned by the minority, not the majority, because the emphasis here is entirely on the authenticity and quality of values, not the quantum or number of people.   Assalaam Alaikum and peace to all.
