"When people put their ballots in the boxes, they are, by that act, inoculated against the feeling that the government is not theirs. They then accept, in some measure, that its errors are their errors, its aberrations their aberrations, that any revolt will be against them. It's a remarkably shrewd and rather conservative arrangement when one thinks of it."

John Kenneth Galbraith
(1908-2006) Canadian-born economist, Harvard professor
The Age Of Uncertainty (1977), Chapter 12, p. 330.
