- The Difference Between a REPUBLIC and a DEMOCRACY
This is an excerpt from "Overview of America" produced by The John Birch Society. It is narrated by John McManus. --- In a Democracy you can not have Snob rule, meaning, the Ruling Elite or Monarch can not go against the majority (the people). The majority overrules the Snob. However, in a Democracy you can have Mob rule, and the Mob can be just as tyrannical, if not worse than a Snob. The Founding Fathers of the United States warned against pure Democracy for this reason.
