"unless they were a majority" is the thing that bothers me. Getting a majority is hard, take for example the Dutch Politics . Our country is now led by a parliament of 10 different political parties. Getting things done now is really hard, because each party has their own goals and finding a majority is for almost impossible. If all the parties were strictly following their own will, there would probably only a handful things done. The only way to get things done now is by making compromises. Another example is of course religion . You can see that there's no majority there. Christianity being the largest with 33%. Even if that would be over 50%, you won't get peace if you say Christianity is the only correct religion.. - Matijn  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics_of_the_Netherlands  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
