We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
(Louis D. Brandeis)
The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.
(Robert M. Hutchins)
The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting.
Candor and accountability in a democracy is very important. Hypocrisy has no place.
Democracy is not a spectator sport, it's a participatory event. If we don't participate in it, it ceases to be a democracy.
We pledge to resist policies that deprive people of their rights to jobs, homes, quality and affordable healthcare, education, sustainable environment and decent incomes.
Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.
