"There is an error common to both oligarchies and to democracies: in the latter the demagogues, when the multitude are above the law, are always cutting the city in two by quarrels with the rich, whereas they should always profess to be maintaining their cause; just as in oligarchies the oligarchs should profess to maintain the cause of the people, . ." - Aristotle

"The law is a great thing,-because men are poor and weak, and bad. And it is great, because where it exists in its strength, no tyrant can be above it.
