  • How PGs threaten democracy
    • PGs empower the already power.
      • E.g. Those with more money, expertise and links with the govt are most successful.
    • PG leaders are not accountable and illegitimate.
      • This is because they are not elected.
    • Insider groups operate behind the scenes, away from public/media scrutiny
    • PGs causes a problem of 'tyranny of the minority'.
    • Some operate outside the democratic process.
      • This is because some use violent action and intimdiation.
