The Will of the People

The fact that the majority of the population is in favor of something is not an argument for the correctness or morality of their desires. It is sometimes possible to see this by looking back at history. It is harder to see it in your own time.


From the Daily Oklahoman, 10-10-1918

The will of the people cannot make just that which is unjust.
–Lord Acton
