"Some of the problems of governance in the United States today stem from an excess of democracy . . . The effective operation of a democratic political system usually requires some measure of apathy and noninvolvement on the part of some individuals and groups."

Samuel Huntington
U.S. Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission
Trilateral Commission Report on the Governability of Democracies, The Crisis of Democracy (1975), 169.
