Democracy Quotes A-Z by Author Democracy Quotes A-Z by Author

My people are going to learn the principles of democracy the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Learning - Knowledge - Truth
- Politics

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
Edward Bernays - America - Manipulation - Ideas - Democracy - Social - People

The engineering of consent is the very essence of the democratic process, the freedom to persuade and suggest.
Edward Bernays - Engineer - Democracy - Manipulation - Freedom

Public education is the key civil rights issue of the 21st century. Our nation's knowledge-based economy demands that we provide young people from all backgrounds and circumstances with the education and skills necessary to become knowledge workers. If we don't, we run the risk of creating an even larger gap between the middle class and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy, our society and the economic future of America.

Democracy is an awful way to run a country, but it's the best system we have.
Winston Churchill - Politicians - System

There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard. There cannot be true democracy unless women are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their own lives.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - Responsibility - Woman - Truth - Opportunity

Democrats lead in all the polls by at least ten points, except one.. Fox News. That is with a margin of error of plus or minus the facts.
Stephen Colbert - News - Facts

Majority rule will only work if you're considering individual rights. You can't have five wolves and one sheep vote on what they want to have for supper.
Larry Flynt - Democracy - Rights - Funny Political

If I am wrong and you are right then the democratic process of the Australian community will vindicate you and condemn me.
John Howard - Politicians - Decisions

We have bloated bureaucracies in Corporate America. The root of the problem is the absence of real corporate democracy.
Carl Icahn - Politics - Management

The problems that exist on Wall Street today go to the center of a debate in this country about wealth and democracy. We cannot keep our democracy if those who are in charge of handling the engines of our economy are not honest with their shareholders. That’s why there is a role for government regulation here. That role for government is breaking up the monopolies, insisting on public disclosure, insisting on public audits, insisting on restitution whenever someone has been cheated.
Dennis Kucinich - Government - Wall Street - Wealth - Democracy - Economy - Shareholder - Regulation - Monopoly - Cheat

Friends, Comrades and fellow South Africans. I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands.
Nelson Mandela - Freedom - Peace -
Democracy - Commitment - Inspirational

Democracy is based on the majority principle. This is especially true in a country such as ours where the vast majority have been systematically denied their rights. At the same time, democracy also requires that the rights of political and other minorities be safeguarded.
Nelson Mandela - Peace - Democracy - Love - Human Rights - Politics


Politics, under a democracy, reduces itself to a mere struggle for office by flatterers of the proletariat; even when a superior man prevails at that disgusting game he must prevail at the cost of his self-respect. Not many superior men make the attempt. The average great captain of the rabble, when he is not simply a weeper over irremediable wrongs, is a hypocrite so far gone that he is unconscious of his own hypocrisy.. a slimy fellow, offensive to the nose.
H. L. Mencken - Politics - Democracy -
Proletariat - Politicians - Hypocrisy - Unconscious

Under the pressure of fanaticism, and with the mob complacently applauding the show, democratic law tends more and more to be grounded upon the maxim that every citizen is, by nature, a traitor, a libertine, and a scoundrel. In order to dissuade him from his evil-doing the police power is extended until it surpasses anything ever heard of in the oriental monarchies of antiquity.
H. L. Mencken - Democracy - Police - Law - Evil - Authority

The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.
H. L. Mencken - Democracy - Liberty - Love - Freedom - Justice - Courage

One of the main purposes of laws in a democratic society is to put burdens upon intelligence and reduce it to impotence. Ostensibly, their aim is to penalize anti-social acts; actually their aim is to penalize heretical opinions. At least ninety-five Americans out of every 100 believe that this process is honest and even laudable; it is practically impossible to convince them that there is anything evil in it. In other words, they cannot grasp the concept of liberty.
H. L. Mencken - Democracy - Law - Intelligent - Punishment - America - Evil - Liberty - Belief


I think access to ministers should be just normal for any citizen in a society, because ministers stand at the last sentry of the gate to review the activities of the public service, and that's part of our democratic system. Every person should be allowed to have access to their local member of parliament or their minister.
Clive Palmer - Politics - Society - Democracy - Influence

Nobody and nothing will stop Russia on the road to strengthening democracy and ensuring human rights and freedoms.
Vladimir Putin - Strength
- Russia - Democracy - Human Rights - Freedom

Russia has made its choice in favor of democracy. Fourteen years ago, independently, without any pressure from outside, it made that decision in the interests of itself and interests of its people.. of its citizens. This is our final choice, and we have no way back. There can be no return to what we used to have before.
Vladimir Putin - Society
- Russia - Democracy - History - Decisions

I met many Russians over the years who were convinced my brothers and I were a cabal, pulling strings behind the scenes to shape American policy. The Soviets had no conception of how a pluralistic democracy works and believed elected officials, up to and including the president of the United States, were only figureheads acting out the roles dictated to them by the real "powers that be" - in this case, my family.
David Rockefeller - Russia - America
