[ Friends / General ] - ID: 55624
"[Democracies must beware of politicians, bureaucrats and power-brokers:] If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs [politics], you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions; and experience declares that man is the only animal which devours his own kind; for I can apply no milder term to the governments of Europe, and to the general prey of the rich on the poor. "
Thomas Jefferson
