Quote from Peter Viereck,

"Democracy, though slowly attained and never by revolutionary jumps, is the best government on earth when it tries to make all its citizens aristocrats. But not when it guillotines whoever is individual, superior, or just different."

[Peter Robert Edwin Viereck] (1916-2006) American Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, political thinker, professor of history at Mount Holyoke College
