Democracy is spreading across the world. Democracy is only possible with easy access to information and good communications. And technology is a way of facilitating communications.Thomas Leo Clancy Jr.
The case for trade is not just monetary, but moral. Economic freedom creates habits of liberty. And habits of liberty create expectations of democracy.George Walker Bush
Democracy is, by the nature of it, a self-canceling business; and it gives in the long run a net result of zero.Thomas Carlyle
Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.James Bovard
Islam is not a race...Islam is simply a set of beliefs, and it is not 'Islamophobic' to say Islam is incompatible with liberal democracy.Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Mass democracy, mass morality and the mass media thrive independently of the individual, who joins them only at the cost of at least a partial perversion of his instincts and insights. He pays for his social ease with what used to be called his soul his discriminations, his uniqueness, his psychic energy, his self.Alfred Alvarez

Democracy elects men totally lacking in scruples, without any morals; those who will pay better, thus those with a higher power of corruption; magicians, charlatans, demagogues, who will excel in their fields during the electoral campaign. Several good men would be able to slip through among them, even politicians of good faith. But they would be the slaves of the former.Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
A marvel that has nothing to offer, democracy is at once a nation's paradise and its tomb.Emil Cioran

The reality is that we are hated not because of our democracy, freedoms, and generous social security system; rather, we are hated because of our involvement in foreign conflicts and quarrels that were never our concern.Amir Butler
My interest is, my one hobby is, maintaining a democracy. If you get these 500,000 soldiers advocating anything smelling of Fascism, I am going to get 500,000 more and lick the hell out of you, and we will have a real war right at home.Smedley Darlington Butler
