Quote of the Month

Writes Mrs. Laura Wood over at her wonderful weblog The Thinking Housewife:

THE MOST compelling argument monarchists have against democracy as a political system is right before our eyes: modern-day America. Is there any doubt that if Tocqueville were reborn and journeyed through America today he would conclude that democracy is man’s worst political innovation, that it produces stupidity, moral cowardice, soft slavery, and a ruling elite that diffuses and cloaks its rule with meritocracy? All of Tocqueville’s worst prophecies have come true. Our democracy is tyrannical.
