"unless they were a majority" is the thing that bothers me. Getting a
majority is hard, take for example the Dutch Politics [1]. 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

Another example is of course religion [2]. 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
