Well, I've grown an interest in the meaning of minority rights, and I'm trying to understand this term a little better. Under which case, or what are the guidelines for determining when, an action decided upon by the majority is illegal for the reason of removing minority rights? Let me sharpen the question. It is quite obvious that the majority cannot take a decision to murder an individual (by murder I mean kill without reason like self defense or capital punishment - an innocent man). I'm interested in more subtle situations. For example, let's say that a certain strike is decided upon by an organization of some sort. Now assume that one of the members of this organization is expected to lose money, as an individual and with no power to change it, as a result of said strike. Can this strike be declared illegal for removing some kind of right for the above person? If not, then what would be a general borderline for such a declaration? Even if you're not sure, I'd love to hear opinions and any kind of discussion regarding this subject.
