“Democracy is just crowdfunded tyranny”

“Democracy is just crowdfunded tyranny” is a saying that has been printed on an image.
     
“DEMOCRACY IS JUST CROWDFUNDED TYRANNY” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Cornel Geteian on September 8, 2019. Taxes are similar to crowdfunding, but the saying equates democracy with tyranny.
 
“Democracy is mob rule (but with income taxes)” is a similar saying.
   
   
Wikipedia: Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large number of people, typically via the internet. Crowdfunding is a form of crowdsourcing and alternative finance.

I would prefer if it said crowd funded mob rule, but we get the point.
