quote icon Within each human heart lies an inexhaustible yearning for liberty, or so we democrats like to believe. In reality, that desire often competes with another: the urge to be told what to do. When people are fearful, angry or confused they are tempted to give away freedoms, or the freedom of others, to leaders promising order. In uncertain times many no longer want to be asked what they think: We want to be told where to march.
