Tuesday, 6 November, 2018

“I do not know if the people of the United States would vote for superior men if they ran for office, but there can be no doubt that such men do not run.” — Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

De La Démocratie en Amérique by Alexis de Tocqueville was published in two volumes, the first in 1835 and the second in 1840. The title translates as “On Democracy in America”, but the English translation was simply called Democracy in America.
