A Quote by Charles Alexis Henri Clérel de Tocqueville on democracy, equality, liberty, and socialism

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 - 1859)
