Quote of the Month

Writes “Mencius Moldbug” at his weblog Unqualified Reservations:

Most educated people today think of democracy as a sort of impeccable ointment against political evil. We are aware - nay continuously instructed, these days, from crib to coffin - that bad government was the leading cause of death, destruction and general misery around the globe in the last century. But now we have a new century to play with, and we have this bezoar, this philosopher's stone, democracy.
