Do You Believe the Majority Rules? Think Again

“The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widely spread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.”    -Bertrand Russell

Here’s a question. Does the majority rule? Here’s the answer: no, never. In fact, not ever. Much like being a kid and hearing that everybody’s doing “it,” whatever ‘it’ is or rather was, we soon discovered that only a minority was doing what many claimed that ‘everyone’ was guilty of.

When we take an honest look at noteworthy events of the last several years in our country such as the rise of BLM, the Transgender movement and child indoctrination, it would appear that most of the population seems to be on the same page. However, we find that the truth of this dynamic in all organizations and/or groups regardless of size, is that out of 100% you have 80% of the people doing 20% of ‘it’; likewise, you have 20% of the people doing 80% of ‘it’ -whatever ‘it’ may be.

To be clear, we’re talking majority vs minority.

One excellent example of this premise was explained in epic fashion by conservative activist Brigitte Gabriel, during a 2018 Heritage Foundation panel, in which an audience member spoke in concerns about those bashing Muslims:

“There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world today. Of course, not all of them are radicals; the majority of them are peaceful people. The radicals are estimated to be between 15 and 25% according to all intelligence services around the world; that leaves 75% of them peaceful people. So why should we worry about the radical 15-25%? Because it is the radicals that kill. Because it is the radicals that behead and massacre.

When you look throughout history, when you look at all the lessons of history, most Germans were peaceful. Yet the Nazis drove the agenda. And as a result, 60 million people died- almost 14 million in concentration camps; 6 million were Jews. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

When you look at Russia, most Russians were peaceful as well. Yet, the Russians were able to kill 20 million people; the peaceful majority were irrelevant. When you look at China, for example, most Chinese were peaceful as well, yet the Chinese were able to kill 70 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. When you look at Japan prior to World War II, most Japanese were peaceful as well, yet Japan was able to butcher its way across Southeast Asia killing 12 million people, mostly killed with bayonets and shovels- the peaceful majority were irrelevant.

On September. 11th in the United States, we had 2.3 million Arab Muslims living in the United States. It took 19 hijackers-19 radicals to bring America down to its knees, destroy the World Trade Center, attack the Pentagon, and kill almost 3,000 Americans that day- the peaceful majority were irrelevant.”

Despite how things appear, it is the minority- not the majority that affects change.

It is the minority- not the majority that are causing the uproar, changing the narrative, and moving the societal needle. By that same token, this also means that the minority can rarely be trusted as the voice of the people; they merely get all the attention because they make so much noise.

In other words, saying “everybody feels this way”, is deceiving. It does not necessarily mean ‘everybody’; rather, this is only a loud, bold select few. Some of the largest American retailers have recently learned this valuable lesson- the expensive way.

For many of us, the child indoctrination agenda has been infiltrating our lives in every conceivable way. From schools and libraries to TV shows and movies, the attack has been relentless. However, in the efforts resulting in box office bombs like ‘Strange World’ and ‘Onward,’ those same groups went after department stores dollars instead- with disastrous results.

This from Bloomberg:

Target Corp. has erased almost $13 billion in market value since it reported earnings last month, and some on Wall Street see more pain ahead for the retailer.

After popping on mixed results, the stock suffered its longest streak of daily losses since February 2000, falling for nine straight sessions through May 31. The drop came as a slew of retailers reported weak sales trends, stoking concern around a pullback in discretionary spending, and as Target faced customer pushback on its LGBTQ-themed merchandise.

“The current stock price could have been a good entry point, but it’s hard to step in front of the current uncertainty,” Wells Fargo & Co. analyst Edward Kelly wrote in a note to clients on Thursday.
The rout pushed Target’s valuation to the lowest level in more than six months, with shares trading around 15 times projected earnings. That’s far cheaper than Costco Wholesale Corp.’s multiple of nearly 34 times, and Walmart Inc.’s roughly 23 times.”

In much the same fashion, Beer giant Anheuser-Busch took a parallel road roughly two months ago.

This from the New York Post:

“Bud Light maker Anheuser-Busch InBev has lost a whopping $27 billion in market value in the wake of its star-crossed partnership with Dylan Mulvaney — most recently slammed by a 4% stock drop this week.” The Post further reported that, “AB InBev’s market capitalization fell to $107.44 billion through the end of May — down more than $27 billion from the $134.55 billion value the company had on March 31, the day before Mulvaney’s partnership went live, according to Dow Jones Market Data Group. Sales of Michelob Ultra, the nation’s No. 3 beer, were off 2.9% versus a year ago in the week ended May 13, in line with a drop a week earlier, according to a Bump Williams analysis of Nielsen IQ data.

Sales of Budweiser, last year’s No. 7 beer with more than $1.8 billion in sales, were down 9.7% in each of the two most recent weeks.

Anheuser-Busch has scrambled to rebuild its brand since the boycott began, giving away rebates that made 15-pack cases of Bud Light and Budweiser free in honor of Memorial Day weekend, and buying back unsold cases of beer that have gone past their expiration date as they’ve collected dust on liquor store shelves following the disastrous partnership.“

Why are these businesses and others failing to succeed in an era where there should be a windfall?

Aren’t LGBTQIA+ issues important to everyone? No; only a minority. Why aren’t Target’s latest inventory of child-friendly “Pride wear” and ‘tuck bathing suits’ putting its stores all in the black financially? Doesn’t America by-and-large support the indoctrination of children, along with the cutting off of little boys’ penises and healthy breasts of prepubescent girls? No; only a minority is willing to consent to these absurdities. The illusion is that the minority is the majority, when in fact, the minority only screams the loudest. Regardless of how it may seem, the majority doesn’t rule. Instead, when all is said and done, the minority ultimately wins- every time.
