…In Athens, where denizens seem to have decided the best way of showing their displeasure at being told their subsidized lifestyles are being curtailed is to burn the ancient ‘cradle of democracy.’

“Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” — John Adams
