Young was the commanding officer of Icarus Base and that was no more a democracy than any other military base. Even though Icarus was destroyed and everyone ended up stranded on the ass end of the universe, Young is still the commanding officer, and everyone was still required to obey him as they would on Icarus.
Says who? The US military has no jurisdiction on Destiny, something even Young later began to allude to himself.

And the civilians were always well treated by Young and the military personnel. In fact, Young publically beat the shit out of one his men for picking on a civilian. There was no grounds for a mutiny.
He stranded one of them on an alien planet and left him there to die, lied about it, then tried to cover his tracks in such a way that would have killed Chloe too.
