About Me

"The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside." AND "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..." AND "The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds."
