Jose Ortega y Gasset On Democracy
In Support of bluepete's Essay "On Democracy."
From Jose Ortega y Gasset's Revolt of the Masses:
"Under universal suffrage, the masses do not decide, their role consists in supporting the decision of one minority or other. It was these who presented their 'programmes'- excellent word. Such programmes were, in fact, programmes of collective life. In them the masses were invited to accept a fine of decision.
"...
"To the last century, then, falls the glory and the responsibility of having let loose upon the area of history the great multitudes."
