Quote from James Anthony Froude,

"English character and English freedom depend comparatively little on the form
which the Constitution assumes at Westminster. A centralised democracy may
be as tyrannical as an absolute monarch; and if the vigour of the nation is
to continue unimpaired, each individual, each family, each district, must
preserve as far as possible its independence, its self-completeness, its
powers and its privilege to manage its own affairs and think its own thoughts."
