Absolute democracy

Absolute democracy is an extreme form of a collective perception of order. It should not to be confused with "power democracy" as found in the Swiss political system in which elective activities for the adjustment of social/political matters are more frequent than in other democracies. Absolute democracy can be very unbalanced in the way that the majority is prioritized while the minority is usually ignored. Although democracy in general, strives to make the people content, absolute democracy doesnt allow the minority to be heard or acknowledged and because of this many people were not happy with absolute democracy. As Francis Devine explains in "Absolute Democracy or Indefeasible Right: Hobbes Versus Locke", there was a tension in American politics between absolute democracy and liberalism. Devine explains liberalism as, "the insistence that certain basic human freedoms are beyond abridgment". Another enemy of absolute democracy was ruling with a monarchy. A monarchy is defined as the ruling in which a monarch is the one in charge for example, a queen or king. There are no supermajorities in absolute democracies, because that is just an added limit on democracy. Nothing is stable or long term, because everything is under scrutiny from the voters.
