Quote from Alexis de Tocqueville,

"I am far from denying that newspapers in democratic countries
lead citizens to do very ill-considered things in common;
but without newspapers there would be hardly any common action at all.
So they mend many more ills than they cause."


Alexis de Tocqueville (more quotes by Alexis de Tocqueville or books by/about Alexis de Tocqueville)
