Democracy quotes

Louis L'Amour
To make democracy work, we must be a notion of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.

George Bernard Shaw
Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve.

E. B. White
Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half the time.

Eleanor Holmes Norton
The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don't agree with.

Alan Coren
Democracy consists of choosing your dictators after they've told you what you think it is you want to hear

Woodrow Wilson
Democracy is not so much a form of government as a set of principles.

Joseph Schumpeter
The ballot is stronger than bullets.

Noam Chomsky
The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations.
