"To totalitarianism,
an opponent is by definition subversive;
democracy treats subversives as mere opponents
for fear of betraying its principles."
by:
Jean-Francois Revel
[Jean-Francois Ricard] (1924-2006) French politician, journalist, author, philosopher, member of the Académie française

Reader comments about this quote:
Certainly is the way it works. And no true "democracy" would breed any subversives except those who oppose the well-being of the common people. The US is not a democracy by definition. It is a federal republic, which is what has made it so easy for corporations to take control of the lives of everyone while creating a gov't that is no more than well-financed theater.
