To reflect

Here’s a few quotes by people that at some point in history felt as frustrated with those in power as I do.

“If people behaved like governments, you’d call the cops.”
~ Kelvin Throop

“Democracy gives every man the right to be his own oppressor.”
~ James Russell Lowell

“Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.”
~ George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, “Maxims: Education,” 1905

“The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.”
~ Woodrow Wilson

“Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
~ Denis Diderot

“In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery?”
~ St. Augustine

“Democracy: The state of affairs in which you consent to having your pocket picked, and elect the best man to do it.”
~ Benjamin Lichtenberg
