Quote for the Day

By Taylor Marvin

Great quote from Bernstein on the essence of democratic government:

“Believing in democracy — really believing in democracy — means accepting that abhorrent things are going to be done in your name, because you are a citizen, not a subject. Even worse, believing in democracy — really believing in democracy — means that sometimes you will have to grudgingly support abhorrent things because the alternative is something even worse, and because, as a citizen, you have to choose.”
