Democracy and the Rogue State

It would be possible and compatible for a Democracy to enshrine individual rights at the centre of its polity but no such democratic state exists to date, indeed, democracy has become synonymous with an absence of individual rights and an enshrinement of collective rights in its place,majority rule with the biggest gang and aggregate of votes prevailing.So to speak of Democracy today is to implicitly reference force and coercion through statism.Democracy is incompatible with liberty therfor as it is the means by which the state through the taxation system combined with regulation and licencing uses coercion as a principle of control to amass a vast amount of wealth to facilitate the exponential expansion of state agencies and so rob people of their autonomy and liberty.
