How do we know the power wasn't given to Central Command and the Detapa Council by the people in some way and later it turned into a twisted oppression (possibly due to the Obsidian Order growing into more power and terrorising everyone)?
What about it? It's still a government that doesn't have the consent of the governed.
Obtaining the consent of the governed requires renewing
that consent. That means, getting a new democratic mandate periodically.
I agree people don't want to be oppressed, but I don't agree that everyone must like democracy.
Oh, I'm not saying anyone ought to like
democracy. Democracy can be frustrating and infuriating. But some form of democracy is still necessary
, because no other form of government actually obtains the consent of the people over whom it rules.
