Israel's Supreme Court Hears Petitions Against First Netanyahu Law Attacking Judiciary – Haaretz:

‘Justice Isaac Amit made it clear that he "is not concerned about extreme scenarios," adding that "democracy doesn't die from a few strong blows; democracy dies in a series of small steps." Later on, when the government representative said "of course the people can do anything," Justice Amit rebuked him in response: "The people can do anything? If the majority can do anything, democracy is a fourth grade decoration team."’

A fourth grade decoration team. In other words, the sovereignty of the people is a symbolic matter, if not democracy is decoration. Third or fourth or fifth grade, that’s less important.
