The math of democracies and republics
1) Democracy: 2 wolves and 1 lamb deciding what to have for dinner.
2) Republic: 200 wolves and 100 lambs voting for 2 wolves and 1 lamb to decide what to have for dinner
3) Constitutional Republic: A Constitution saying you can’t eat lamb but a Supreme Court made up of 5 wolves and 4 lambs deciding that mutton is not lamb.
