The French Revolution, probably the world's first mass demonstration of what Marxist ideology leads to, was a democratic process. Who went to the Guillotine versus who didn't, was most frequently determined by the raw vote of the crowd. No constitution protected basic civil rights, no guarantee of Due Process and trial by a jury of one's peers. Nope, only the vote of "the people." Heads fell in droves and blood was the detergent that washed the streets each night. Democracy.
