About

This site is about my two big topics, majority tyranny and political theology. The core idea of majority tyranny is that democratic rule may be just oppressive as any other (or maybe worse, since the tyrant is more powerful). This idea has been with us from the time of Plato to the critics of Brexit in 2016. See more here: Tyranny of the majority.

Political theology treats political concepts as analogous to theological ones, or political ideologies as akin to religious doctrines. It goes without saying that the democratic concept of “the majority” (which is almost always equated with “the people”) is just as transcendent as the theological concept of God. Moses at least saw the back of God, but no one has ever seen such a thing as a people. Further reading: Political theology.

I may add other topics later on, but so far enjoy just that much!
