Enlightenment Philosophy

Ever wonder why it seems that Washington continues to make decisions that are contrary to the majority of American opinion? The answer is found in Enlightenment philosophy.

If you give both the majority and the minority equal rights, you'll no longer have minority rights because the majority will always overwhelm the minority.
