April Cite Adds

Some more quotes on democracy from April.

Vox Populi says:

What we're seeing here is the last desperate gasps of democracy as the new aristocratic age struggles to be born.
Over at the blog of the Libertarian Alliance, D.J. Webb wrote:
Accountable government is not the same as democratic government. We have seen in recent years how we are still able to vote for governing parties, and yet still see the business of government largely conducted behind closed doors in Brussels and in Whitehall. The democratic electoral mechanism is still in place, but it doesn’t appear to make any difference any more. The reverse could also be true: a government could be accountable, while not being fully democratic.
