Curiously, I never thought McTim was attacking democracy.
Rather the opposite: when he says something was a result
of democracy, it isn't blaming democracy but implying
that said something must be good, by definition, because it
was a result of democracy.

But of course I may misunderstand as well (wouldn't
be the first time).

I suspect the real disagreement lies there, what is and what
isn't "rightfully condemnamble".
