Sci, I think the point Dal Rassak is trying to make is that someone could reject democracy and prefer other ways of ruling,
Yes, I understand that. And I am arguing that doing so, even if it seemingly has the consent of the populace, is still an act that violates the natural rights of the people -- and that it lacks the consent of those generations who come later, since the establishment of such an autocracy does not require later generations' consent.
