Jose Saramago on Democracy

"Let us consider what our democracy really is and what purpose it serves, before claiming, in accordance with the obsession of our time, that it should be compulsory and universal."

From "The Least Bad System is in Need of Change: Reinventing Democracy" in Le Monde Diplomatique.

What a wonderful Saramago quote! Thanks for finding that and putting it up,Alex.
