Quote from James Madison,

"There is no maxim, in my opinion,
which is more liable to be misapplied, and which,
therefore, more needs elucidation, than the current,
that the interest of the majority
is the political standard of right and wrong."

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
