TIRED DEMOCRACY.

"If there is one fact we can really prove, from the history that we really do know, it is that despotism can be a development, often a late development and very often the end of societies that have been highly democratic.

A despotism may almost be defined as a tired democracy. As fatique falls on a community, the citizens are less inclined for that eternal vigilance which has truly been call the price of liberty; and they prefer to arm only one single sentinel to watch the city while they sleep.

It is also true that they needed him for some sudden and militant act of reform; it is equally true that he often took advantage of being the strong man armed to be a tyrant . . . "

Interesting.
Lessons to self:
Never follow one man or party blindly.
Keep close track of and communication with those that hold power or legislate
Never give up right to protect one's self.
Stay "WOKE" and "ENGAGED"
