Is consumer democracy a legitimate concept?

The thing about capitalism is that the people can’t get what they want just by offering money for it. There has to be someone willing to actually provide the good or service they want. If no one is willing, then they don’t get it.

It’s the same way with representative democracy. Suppose I want to vote Libertarian. If no Libertarian candidate runs, then I can’t vote Libertarian.

There might be people who want to look up the concept of “consumer democracy” on Wikipedia. Guess what, there is no consumer democracy article. It existed at one time, but was deleted. A sysop decided that Wikipedia was not going to provide that article to the readers. The desires of the readers are irrelevant, unless there’s an editor willing to write an article and a person in authority on Wikipedia willing to make sure that article isn’t deleted.
