Democracy or Mobocracy

We want the people to rule, but how is best?

What is the difference between democracy and mobocracy? They both claim to be the voice of the people. Democracy is government by the people, while mobocracy is political control by a mob.


Democracy, voting

Democracy in the United States has a throttle on the rule of the majority. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights provide for individual rights that cannot be overturned by a vote of the majority.

Mobocracy, like we saw on Jan. 6, 2021, has no such restraint. The mob’s passionate beliefs ignore all considerations than block its own driving mission, including the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
