I would never suggest that true democracy would entail such a "tyranny of the majority". That's why I'm a supporter of consensus decision making. It's been common in organizations and the governing of numerous entire societies.

And as for the fact that zoning laws exist in all "developed countries" (countries which, by definition, have very similar government and economic structures to ours) is not evidence that it works. The last time I was in Europe they were every bit as concerned, if not more, as us about big-box stores, fast food joints and gentrification as those of us in North America.
