11. Democracy depends upon a rational opposition so the majority...

doesn't become full of itself and run amok.

But rational is the key. Go back to Depression ysars whe absolutely no one knew what the hell they were doing and we basically lucked out with FDR and trying new things. Republicans had to shut up when everyone realized what they were doing was useless.

The Brits openly talk of the "oppositon party" and that's exactly what it is. And should be.
