Quote from Thomas Babington Macaulay 

"None of the modes by which a magistrate is appointed, popular election,
the accident of the lot, or the accident of birth, affords, as far as we
can perceive, much security for his being wiser than any of his neighbours.
The chance of his being wiser than all his neighbours together is still smaller."
