Quote of the Day!

From David, in comments here:

May I humbly interject here the third world county corollary to Santayana’s Axiom as a partial argument against Horowitz's suggestion that we surrender the Constitution to mob rule?
“In a democracy, those who refuse to learn from history are in the majority and dictate that everyone else suffer for their ignorance.”
There are more than a few reasons that the Founders did NOT give us a democracy but a representative republic when they framed the Constitution.

Yes, yes, and YES. More of my own thoughts on democracy here.
