Democracy's Purpose

My standard aphorism on this topic is: "The purpose of democracy is to prevent change." However, a comrade suggested a variation which might have better resonance in these times:

"The purpose of democracy is to make sure the rich people always win."

Democracy is the facade behind which plutocracy reigns. Sort of a reverse Wizard of OZ whereas Oz has the appearance of strength and fierceness, in reality it was an old man behind a screen. Likewise democracy appears so morally just and Patriotic, in reality its a vicious scam run by the apostles of unbridled capitalism.
