"The notion of democracy as preference aggregation can conflict with the notion of democracy as an idealized rational discourse."

Yes, well, OK. But the latter notion is a silly one, only held by people who've spent too long in places like Harvard and Oxford and who refuse to think about - as oppose to simply read - what they find in things like newspapers.
