Walter Lippmann

Walter Lippmann

was an American intellectual, writer, reporter, and political commentator famous for being among the first to introduce the concept of Cold War
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. Walter Lippmann quotes
