Excerpt from True and False Democracy

If knowledge is power, surely there are times when ignorance seems more powerful still. No lessons are so little learned as those of past human experience in politics. In each succeeding generation men come forward who are rash or foolish enough to attempt any experiment, no matter how discredited, and vain enough to attack any tradition or institution, no matter how fully justified and established. They foment disturbing change and prevent progress.

The name democracy is old, but the thing itself is quite new. Until the rise of public opinion, democracy in the modern sense was not possible. Nevertheless, human nature has been pretty much the same since history began, and human strength and human weakness have been exhibited and tested in almost every possible way.
