Quotes & Notes

It is probable that “democracy” is the most original form of “organized” society. One could well imagine that if seven out of ten cavemen wanted to do a thing collectively in one way and the three others decided differently, the majority of these cavemen (assuming that they are of about equal bodily strength) could force the rest to accept their decision. The rule of majorities, in combination with the employment of brutal force, is likely to be the most primitive form of government in the development of mankind.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what they are going to have for lunch.
