      I disagree with the point of view that was presented by the Venetian aristocrat in this book. It seems that he does not completely understand the concept of democracy.

      A major part of the idea is that the government should represent what the people want,


      even if what they want is in opposition with what the leaders consider best for the country.

      By placing the decision-making process in the hands of a person who is supposedly higher than the common people, his or her decisions can be biased towards his or her own well-being.

      Even the fact that the person is higher than the common people can make the decisions biased, considering that they see themselves as higher than the people (and therefore do not make efforts to understand the people that they are ruling).

      ...

      Any leader who acts on their own will without obtaining consent from the majority first is in danger of not fully representing their own country.

      When the criticisms mentioned the ability of the aristocrats of Venice to make ‘proper’ decisions, there is ultimately no way

      to prove that such a bloodline of unbiased people actually existed.

      It seems far too hypocritical of the aristrocacy to take a stand like this against a government architecture that he really must have no idea about, operation-wise.

      How could he have the experience? It’s not possible.
