In the USA the idea is that the majority cannot, by virtue of greater numbers, violate the rights of the minority. Democracy ends when the rights of the few are lessened. Someone once called it “the tyranny of the majority”. Granted, the USA is not a democracy, but rather a constitutional republic, so perhaps the USA isn’t a good example.
