All men desire their own perfect adjustment, but they desire it, being finite men, on their own terms.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of numbers can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When all men think alike, no one thinks very much.More Walter Lippmann quotes [08/03/2011 12:08:42]
It is easier to develop great power than it is to know how to use it wisely.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If all power is in the people, if there is no higher law than their will, and if by counting their votes, their will may be ascertained - then the people may entrust all their power to anyone, and the power of the pretender and the usurper is then legitimate. It is not to be challenged since it came originally from the sovereign people.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
