“Liberty > Democracy”

“Liberty > Democracy” (“Liberty is greater than Democracy”) is a saying and meme of uncertain origin. Liberty is more important because in a democracy, the majority can take away your rights.
 
“Because liberty is greater than democracy. People can vote away their freedoms” was posted on Twitter by Ðavid Łorenžo ⚡ on February 12, 2018. “Liberty > Democracy To quote @michaelmalice, my rights aren’t up for discussion, much less a vote” was posted on Twitter by Lauren Chen on June 25, 2020. “Liberty > Democracy” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Rothmus 🏴 on September 5, 2022.

Liberty is greater than democracy only when ultimate liberty is creating the best for the most of all people.

No, that’s what you get when corrupt politicians destroy free people and free trade by using government force.
Liberty > Democracy > Fascism+Socialism yet we all seem to suffer these in reverse order.
