I would cite the current president as an example of how the masses have a nasty habit of voting against their best interests, and in general I agree with this exerpt, however I felt a strong desire to point out that the Nazis never gained a plurality or a majority from the Weimar electorate--as Hitler seized power when the Reichstag mysteriously burned down with less than a third of that year's votes to his party's name, and that, furthermore, the Bolsheviks had a tendency to dissolve any parliaments without Bolshevik majorities. My lack of knowledge on the Iranian Revolution prevents me from commenting on the third piece of evidence.
