Quotes to Remember, September 6, 2022

“No protracted war can fail to endanger the freedom of a democratic country … it must invariably and immeasurably increase the powers of the civil government; it must almost compulsorily concentrate the direction of all men and the management of all things in the hands of the administration. … All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and the shortest means to accomplish it.”

(Alexis De Tocqueville)

“After each war there is a little less democracy left to save.”

(Brooks Atkinson)
