Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/03/09

It is my principle that the will of the majority should always prevail.”   —   Thomas Jefferson

(A very populist thing for T.J. to say!  I don’t necessarily agree with this, because as Alexander Hamilton (reputedly) said:  “The masses are asses.”  Which I’m guessing is why we have a democratic republic, and NOT a true democracy.)   —   YUR

    I recoiled a bit after I solved this; Majority rule is obviously useful in many instances, but it simply cannot be the end-all be-all for some of the most important decisions that will affect all people.

    Agreed. Unfortunately, Abe Lincoln’s famous quote has been bastardized to: “You can fool some (many/most) of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time . . .” The corporate media shapes the “opinions” of John Q. Public, and they do it in such a way that people maintain an illusion of “free will”.
