"Every device employed to bolster individual
freedom must have as its chief purpose
the impairment of the absoluteness of power.
The indications are that such an impairment is
brought about not by strengthening the individual
and pitting him against the possessors of power,
but by distributing and diversifying power and
pitting one category or unit of power against the other.
Where power is one, the defeated individual,
however strong and resourceful,
can have no refuge and no recourse."
by:
Eric Hoffer
(1902-1983) American author, philosopher, awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom
