Quote from William Kornhauser 

"Liberty requires restraints on popularly-elected leaders,
as well as from minorities, so that the individual is protected
from undue and arbitrary coercion by the state.
These restraints are provided by a plurality
of more or less equal and independent groups
which check and balance one another's power."
