Democrazia e Governo

Not only is democracy mystical nonsense, it is also immoral.
If one man has no right to impose his wishes on another, then ten million men have no right to impose their wishes on the one, since
the initiation of force is wrong (and the assent of even the most overwhelming majority can never make it morally permissible).
Opinions —even majority opinions—neither create truth nor alter facts.
A lynch mob is democracy in action. So much for mob rule.
The very word "government" means some men governing—
ruling over—others.
But to the degree that men are ruled by other men, they exist in slavery.
Slavery is a condition in which one is not allowed to exercise his right of self-ownership but is ruled by someone else. 
Government—the rule of some men over others by initiated force—is a form of slavery. 
To advocate government is to advocate slavery.
To advocate limited government is to put oneself in the ridiculous position of advocating limited slavery.
To put it simply, government is the rule of some men over others
by initiated force, which is slavery, which is wrong
