The tyranny of the majority is when decisions made by a majority place its interests above an individual or minority group. It constitutes active oppression and, unfortunately, is inherent to democratic government. In the IserveU system this concern is mitigated further than in most democratic models. Users will be able to comment and read other comments on the issue. The most compelling arguments for either side will appear at the most prominent position on the site.
