Democracy

"Democracy is when there is a majority of free, poor men who have authority to rule, while oligarchy is when it is in the hands of the wealthy and well-born, who are a minority."    - Noam Chomsky ; Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power


"What do you do when you have lost faith in the place you call home? That wasn’t quite the right way to put it: I never really had faith in the United States in the strongest sense of the word. I hoped that one day white people here would finally leave behind the belief that they mattered more. But what do you do when this glimmer of hope fades, and you are left with the belief that white people will never change—that the country, no matter what we do, will remain basically the same?"    - Eddie S. Glaude Jr. ; Begin Again


"A moral reckoning is upon us, and we have to decide, once and for all, whether or not we will truly be a multiracial democracy."    - Eddie S. Glaude Jr. ; Begin Again


"Rather, democracy is when every free citizen has authority and oligarchy is when the rich have it."    - Noam Chomsky ; Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power


“Democracy is not simply a license to indulge individual whims and proclivities. It is also holding oneself accountable to some reasonable degree for the conditions of peace and chaos that impact the lives of those who inhabit one’s beloved extended community.”    - Aberjhani ; Splendid Literarium: A Treasury of Stories, Aphorisms, Poems, and Essays


"Poverty is the cause of the defects of democracy. That is the reason why measures should be taken to ensure a permanent level of prosperity."    - Noam Chomsky ; Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power
