Quote from Thomas Sowell,

"To include freedom in the very definition of democracy
is to define a process not by its actual characteristics
as a process but by its hoped for results.
This is not only intellectually invalid, it is,
in practical terms, blinding oneself in advance
to some of the unwanted consequences of the process."

(1930- ) Writer and economist
