A Quote by Arthur Meier Schlesinger, Jr. on government, people, ridicule, and skepticism

A little disrespect is not a bad thing. Skepticism is essential to chasten what Walt Whitman called "the never-ending audacity of elected persons." But, carried too far, ridicule of the people we choose to govern us may undermine self government itself.

Arthur Meier Schlesinger (1917 -)
