Tocqueville and me; Regarding Egalitarianism

15 May

Tocqueville on Egalitarianism

 

 

 

“I want to imagine with what new features

 

despotism could be produced in the world:

 

I see an innumerable crowd of like

 

and equal men who revolve

 

on themselves without

 

repose, – – procuring

 

the small and vulgar

 

pleasures with which

 

they fill their souls.”

 

 

 

 

 

According to me

 

 

 

“The current concern is that our multitudes lay resting; supported by a false hope.”
