Why couldn't we have a system to where if a mod deletes a post or comment the deleted item would show, deleted, but then you could press a button and expand the deleted content and view it. Then you could have a separate up and down vote and if a threshold is met for upvotes then the post could be undeleted. So this would basically have the same effect as jury nullification or how real democracy should work. If a law is made that a certain threshold of people don't like, then theoretically it should be overturned.

I think @MrHarryReems is saying that if everyone could just view the deleted comment then what's the point of deleting it?

What you're describing sounds the same as the up/downvote system, as when a comment gets downvoted below a score threshold it collapses anyway and enough upvotes expands it and makes it more visible.

Then just have a mod option that forces that. I always hate when half a post is [deleted] and then ten layers down theres this one guys post with zero context. I think [deleted] is bullshit in comments unless someone is just spamming. Even if they were then, like i said, have an option for mods that could even force hide all comments by a user notorious for shit. I would rather see a downvoted hidden comment there than [deleted] cause you at least get context. Also it sucks when you see a heated argument between anybody and then here comes mister, im so great, mod and deletes everything he doesnt agree with or that break the 'rules'.
