Any vote chooses a dictator.
My mom used democracy to get me to do chores. She might say something like: "You can clean your room or take out the trash, the choice is yours." So I'd take out the trash, feeling very empowered, free, and independent. Then maybe the next day I’d get the opportunity to choose again. Eventually, I cleaned my room. It helped that I was incredibly stupid and obedient. And to this day, I’d defend her with my life.
