Notable Quote – Max Weber

by Skip

Scarcely fifteen years ago, when American workers were asked why they allowed themselves to be governed by politicians whom they admitted they despised, the answer was: ‘We prefer having people in office whom we can spit upon, rather than a caste of officials who spit upon us, as is the case with you.’ This was the old point of view of American ‘democracy.’

- Max Weber, author (“Politics as a Vocation”, 1910)

 

Can we go back to that model?
