Flertall

Flertallets mening kan bare være uttrykk for inkompetanse.

Kilde:

The Crisis of the Modern World (1927).

Engelsk:

The opinion of the majority cannot be anything but an expression of incompetence.

Fransk:

L’avis de la majorité ne peut être que l’expression de l’incompétence.

Del av:

This now leads us to elucidate more precisely the error of the idea that the majority should make the law, because, even though this idea must remain theoretical - since it does not correspond to an effective reality - it is necessary to explain how it has taken root in the modern outlook, to which of its tendencies it corresponds, and which of them - at least in appearance - it satisfies. Its most obvious flaw is the one we have just mentioned: the opinion of the majority cannot be anything but an expression of incompetence, whether this be due to lack of intelligence or to ignorance pure and simple; certain observations of ’mass psychology’ might be quoted here, in particular the widely known fact that the aggregate of mental reactions aroused among the component individuals of a crowd crystallizes into a sort of general psychosis whose level is not merely not that of the average, but actually that of the lowest elements present.
