A republic is a more disciplined system than a democracy. That’s why democracy or democratic is now used as a codeword for collectivism. (Socialism or Communism)
Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general.A Democracy:
Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, the Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.A Republic is a few layers removed from the raw emotion of an electorate. In other words, in the Republic, with democratically elected representatives, it will take time and offers cooling layers to issues that are highly emotional.
There are popular speakers who can whip large numbers of people into a highly emotional state. If they all voted to take a vote immediately on an issue, then all voted emotionally, you have what is known as a lynch mob.
