Notable Quotes


"Far too many people believe that democracy is the goal. Democracy is not the goal, democracy is just a means to an end. After all, as has happened countless times in history, if democracy is used to install or empower dictators what good is it? No, democracy is not the goal. Liberty is the goal, without liberty democracy is worthless."

  1. Good point, Jer, and I believe you're exactly right. Many seem to think that "free" elections mean that a country is a democracy, and therefor that country's citizens have liberty. As you have said, a country can use democracy to install a dictator.
