I would like to share an article by Ilya Somin, Professor of Law at George Mason University that was published in the Washington Post. It is a review of a book by Jason Brennan, Against Democracy. As he says  the book “challenges a basic precept that most people take for granted: the morality of democracy. Dominant conventional wisdom on both right and left holds that, all adults should have a right to vote, and that the electorate has a right to rule. Brennan contends otherwise.”

I share this not because I am in complete agreement with Brennan, but he raises very important issues that require serious deliberation.
