Interesting Comment on Politics and Democracy

Humans can't be trusted because they're bad... so we need human overlords with concentrated political power to protect humans from other humans.

What about this concentration of power? Isn't that dangerous?

No... we must ensure that only good people get into that position of power.

How will you ensure that?

Through democracy. The majority will decide which overlord gets in a position of power.

But didn't you start with the premise that a majority of humans are bad? So doesn't it follow that the majority will choose someone who'll allow them to further their bad agenda?
