If democracy in this sentence refers to direct democracy, then the sentence is entirely correct. If democracy in this context means representative democracy, then the appointment of judges in the United States is in accordance with democratic procedures. The reason for appointing in that way is that legal justice does not require democracy, but rather neutrality. Representative democracy ensures that the judges elected are of a professional standard.

What is the economic basis of the representative capitalist system? — Capitalist private ownership. In a capitalist system, representative democracy prevents the tyranny of the majority and limits the power of government. The purpose of all this is to protect private property from infringement.
