"It is not the function of the government

difference between politicians and dissidents. Politicians are focused on polls and the press. They are constantly making compromises. But dissidents focus on ideas. They have a burning message inside of them. they would stand up for their convictions no matter what the consequences.

In spite of all the polls warning you that talking about spreading democracy in the Middle East might be a losing issue -- despite all the critics and the resistance you faced --- you kept talking about the importance of free societies and free elections. You kept explaining that democracy is for everybody. You kept saying that only denocracy will truly pave the way to peace and security. You, Mr President, are a dissident amoung the leaders of the free world."

The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in
its profits, or so dependent on its favours that there will be no
opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body
of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous
advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens
without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system
is inimical to their interests."

Protege of the Rothschild banking family
