Transcript

  • 1. Democracy
  • 2. Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Abraham Lincoln
  • 3. Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve. George Bernard Shaw
  • 4. In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. George Orwell
  • 5. Democracy is only a dream: it should be put in the same category as Arcadia, Santa Claus, and Heaven. H. L. Mencken
  • 6. The spirit of democracy cannot be imposed from without. It has to come from within . Mohandas K. Gandhi
  • 7. A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. Thomas Jefferson
  • 8. The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter. Winston Churchill.
  • 9. A representative owes the People not only his industry, but his judgment, and he betrays them if he sacrifices it to their opinion.    Edmund Burke
  • 10. I'd like to teach Iraq about Democracy because we're so experienced with it. First they should know that after 100 years they should free their slaves. Then after 150 years they should give their women the right to vote. Oh, and of course when they start it all they should begin with some genocide and ethnic cleansing.  Kurt Vonnegut- Appearance on The Daily Show September 2005
  • 11. Democracy passes into despotism.     Plato
