A Quote by Robert Anson Heinlein on democracy, autocracy, representative, judgment, and fairness

Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something. Autocracy is based on the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let's play that over again too. Who decides?

Robert Heinlein (1907 - 1988)
