My mind boggles at being told that voluntary organizations that govern themselves by democratic principles aren't "really" democracies, and that "real" democracy requires that anyone, anywhere, anytime, under any circumstances, must be allowed free, unfettered access to any franchise whatsoever. How in the world did people get this cockeyed viewing of how the world works?
If any of you happen to be reading this, I suggest you actually read Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, or at least the foreword, which is only about 25 pages long and explains the history of how Major (later General) Robert came to write a book on voluntary deliberative assemblies and governance structures. I consider Robert's to be the technical manual of democracy. If you think "democracy" is "everyone, anytime, anywhere, and always free, and never with any responsibility," then you've only been reading the sales brochures.
