The Paradox of Democracy

On this fine May Day, allow me to share the following quotation from Walter Lippman that my friend Andrew sent me:

This is one of the paradoxes of the democratic movement—that it loves a crowd and fears the individuals who compose it—that the religion of humanity should have no faith in human beings.

The democrats dream in contradictions and fail to think much at all.

Such reminds me of the intellectual’s love of humanity but hatred for human beings; men are rather odd creatures.
