Unalienable Rights and the Majority

The whole of the Bill [of Rights] is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals … It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, NO MAJORITY has a right to deprive them of. – Albert Gallatin (1789)

Think about this as it relates to democracy, as in the concept that majority rules.
