Your tsunami of questions in lieu of answers is far too verbose for me to respond to.
What is the inherent virtue of democracy (majority rule)? Gang rape is an example of a majority imposing it’s will upon a minority (one person). Pertaining to democracy in government, it enforces its will with armed enforcers. They can kill you or your family dog and for the most part get away with it. More humanly it can take your property or imprison you. When Chairman Mao said, “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun” he wasn’t exclusively talking about socialist governments. Certainly the government provides some blessings, but when dealing with the government there is always a gun on the table.
Progress in the mind of the modern leftist is stuff they want. Not all agree that the stuff they want is good. Once it becomes law, the minority opinion doesn’t mean much.
Big changes do indeed come from change in worldview of a majority which is why there is so much propaganda being pushed upon us. I recommend the book “The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind” for insight into how that works, for better or worse.
