Government, Law & Citizenship

Both the concepts of majority rule and minority rights are two constitutional concepts that go hand in hand with one another. By its definition, majority rule is the power that allows the people towards voting for and against issues affecting them. This is taken as an important tool towards driving the government towards its adequate organization. Elsewhere, minority rights are the power which is bestowed to a group that does not have the power of the majority rule to.

It is aimed at avoiding any act of discrimination with which their basic rights can be drawn away from them which therefore implies lack of their representation. The two concepts go hand in hand in the sense that deficiency of the majority rule in a minority group is what gives minority rights.

S constitution at various levels.

According to Amendment one, the Congress shall take no law which has its respect to establishment of a religion, prohibiting free exercise or elsewhere abridging the freedom of press or speech. According to this amendment, every person has the legal right of choosing for him/herself any religion and hitherto participate to the codes of such a religion even to those who lack majority rule. This is ideally important in ensuring that minority groups are not denied of their freedom of worship rights that could have been eroded by the majority rule of the enormous religious groups.

Since majority groups can prevent minority groups from exercising their full potential towards freedom of worship, Amendment one gives the provision for freedom of worship for all despite the size of the group.

Consequently, all persons are provided with equal protection for their rights.

This has it that, no person shall be deprived off his/her privileges by the United States authority following either majority or minority inequalities such as religion, race, gender and others. This tries to provide a legal process of equity and equality for all Americans despite any difference in their voting powers. Equality and equity across the whole population domain is what ensures that there is no aspect of taking of advantage in enjoying the state resources by one group over another minority group. Consequently, all the people have the equality in enjoying the use of state resources.
