Abstract: One of the major dangers of democracy is the potential for ‘tyranny by the majority’: the risk that certain groups may use their majority to promote their special interests at the expense of minorities. For example, a religious majority may seek to have the state impose its religious values on the entire population, resulting in the oppression of religious minorities. Many countries try to avoid this outcome by constitutional separation of religion from the state, such that their governments do not promote one religion over others, but act only to protect religious freedom where it is threatened.
