On democracy

When you say you want 'more democracy', what exactly do you mean? Do you want a system in which elected people compare notes, take into consideration wishes from every corner of the country and from every group of people living in it? Or do you want 'the voice of the people' to be heard at every 'important' decision by way of referenda? If so, who decides what's 'important'?

In other words: do you prefer the current (imperfect) system or a dictatorship of the majority, considering you belong to a minority?

Curious to know what you choose and why. Let me know in the comments section!
