The Censorship of Television, 94 Northwestern University Law Review 1215 (1999)

Abstract

Democracy is a system that vests the ultimate power of governance in individual citizens. As evidenced by the rule requiring universal distribution of the franchise and our commitment to the one person-one vote principle, much of democracy's appeal flows from a postulate of the moral equality of citizens: the views of one person are assumed to be as worthy of respect as those of others.
