A Quote by Theodore Parker on democracy, eternity, freedom, god, government, ideas, justice, laws, people, and principles

There is what I call the American idea. . . . This idea demands, as the proximate organization thereof, a democracy,-that is, a government of all the people, by all the people, for all the people; of course, a government of the principles of eternal justice, the unchanging law of God. For shortness' sake I will call it the idea of Freedom.
