Of course by democracy we mean here the rule of a majority over one or more minorities.

Very interesting. Gotta get me that book.

I think it doesnt matter in case that people from different ethnicities dont discriminate against those of other ethnicities.

Nevertheless I think there are many problems associated with a majority forcing their views on a minority.

the democracy we have right now will always suppress the minority, but consensus is about everybody having a voice.
i want you to seriously consider this article:

http://www.cracked.com/article_14990_what-monkeysphere.html

Its about the human brain and how the ancient societies and tribes where build. its very interesting, specially for the anarchist ideology.
take a look at the following links after you have read the article:
