Democracy In America

Democracy In America
      Alexis De Tocqueville 
* In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them.
 * There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle.
 *  Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
* Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Democracy In America by Alexis De Tocqueville
