Keywords :   Democracy |

 

 

 

 

"If experience teaches us anything at all it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar. His very existence, indeed, is a standing subversion of the public good in every rational sense. He is not one who serves the common weal; he is simply one who preys upon the commonwealth."

 

 

 

 

H. L. Mencken, "The Politician" Prejudices: A Selection (4th Series, 1924)
