«What a terrible era in which idiots govern the blind!»
(JULIUS CAESAR in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar).
«One idiot is one idiot. Two idiots are two idiots. Ten thousand idiots are a political party.»
«The majority never has right on its side. Never, I say!
That is one of these social lies against which an independent, intelligent men must wage war.
Who is it that constitute the majority of the population in a country?

I don't imagine you will dispute the fact that at present the stupid people are in an absolutely overwhelming majority all the world over.»
«The state, I call it, where all are poison-drinkers, the good and the bad:
the state, where all lose themselves, the good and the bad:
the state, where the slow suicide of all—is called "life."»
