In my utopia, democracy would always be a consideration, but not rule by democracy. The most important thing would be that citizens could be provided with the ability to stay in or leave any commune, at any time. That way if a minority is threatened by "democracy", they can leave.

EDIT: you guys are all right about the flaws in my thinking here. Ive gotten 4 hours of sleep a night for the past week and i was kind of just rolling with whatever. if you have any additional recommended reading for me so I can understand better forms of decision making besides democracy please tell me

I've read, in the past, quite extensively about the mouse utopia experiments and I can say with certainty that while it is fun reading, it bears almost no importance to human life or behavior.

However, I did become such a fan of the name "Mouse Utopia Experiments" that i wrote some music under the pseudonym, check it out, whatever
