Because we believe in something being right or wrong. This is a claim he uses not only to distinguish assertoric from problematic imperatives, but also to argue for the imperfect duty of helping others (G 4:423) He also appears to rely on this claim in each of his examples. And a flaw that can show up in any majority rule democracy is tyranny of the majority where what is voted on and considered by the majority to be in their best interest may be harmful to the minority opposed to it.
