arithmocracy (s) (noun)
, arithmocracies (pl)
A form of government in which governmental power results from the group that holds the numerical majority in a state: An arithmocracy
can be a good form of government, or it can have negative results, depending on whether there is a balance between arithmocratic
rule and individual liberty.
If an arithmocracy wanted to do away with criticism of the government with the hope of assuring national harmony, should the government get by with passing a law forbidding the media or private citizens from openly challenging all governmental decisions?
