"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself."
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
Federalist No. 51, February 8, 1788
