leave a comment »

“Election campaigns in a democracy would be amusing were the offices at stake only those of a school class or social club. But the matters at stake are deadly serious, and the inanity of holding popular elections to deal with them is nothing short of disgusting. Authority is put at auction; leadership is won by those who best exhibit the selling skills of prostitutes.”
