The problem with pure democracy is that it does not always approach a subject with a rational view. Instead, emotion becomes the sole tool used to decipher which direction to take. This will lead to a bias decision that is near opposite of what would have been decided with logic. Thus, when there is democracy and it lead by emotion, what is inevitable is the encroachment of Locke's stated Natural Rights and, through Rousseau's philosophy, Hobbes' is born: government with absolute power.

Emotion wouldn't be bound to become the sole tool, there will always be reason to take into account.
