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."
