Democracy is only a threat to freedom, economic or otherwise when "democratic excesses" are not controlled by honest law.

The problem is that law and the legal "profession" has realized that controlling "democratic excesses" by enforcing the "rule of law" (All persons are to be treated EQUALLY in terms of rights and responsibilities by law) is unprofitable, since it maintains balance of power between individuals which has the effect of keeping the peace, reducing conflict and legal fees. Far better to enforce (All persons are NOT to be treated EQUALLY in terms of rights and responsibilities by law using false pretext X).

Failure and personal accountability, as a consequence of freedom are an absolute survival necessity, so we can learn and adapt.

Justice Defined: We are all free to profit or suffer and learn (adapt to excellence) by facing the consequences of our OWN choices. Injustice is to be forced to suffer the consequences of choices of unaccountable (irresponsible) others..

The grim reaper of "Mathematics Of Rule" proves where this folly leads:
