Quotes Mark Liked

James Burnham
“There is no one force, no group, and no class that is the preserver of liberty. Liberty is preserved by those who are against the existing chief power. Oppositions which do not express genuine social forces are as trivial, in relation to entrenched power, as the old court jesters.”
James Burnham, The Machiavellians, Defenders of Freedom
