A Quote by Ernest R. Palen, D.D. on america, bureaucracy, corruption, death, democracy, difficulty, freedom, government, kindness, and politics

We have forgotten in America that a democracy is the most difficult kind of government to maintain. It is the hardest kind of government under which to live. It is hardest to maintain because of the widespread political corruption to which it so easily lends itself. Our drift today toward complete totalitarian bureaucracy is one that threatens immediately the very freedoms for which our own boys are dying.
