A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on contentment and dictatorship

The German dictator, instead of snatching the victuals from the table, has been content to have them served to him course by course.

A Quote by Raymond E. Moley on bankers, delusion, democracy, dictatorship, existence, feeling, heaven, idealism, interest, lawyers, managers, politicians, and world

The antithesis of democracy is class dictatorship, whether by groups of bankers, investors, managers, politicians, lawyers or union members. Over a considerable part of the world the unspeakable doctrine is being preached that the ideal of a democratic State is a snare and a delusion. A politician if he denies the existence of the essentials of democracy and denies it in such a way as to create class feeling, is not working in the interest of democracy even though he protests to the high heavens that that is his objective.

A Quote by Ordway Tead on democracy, dictatorship, individuality, personality, personality, purpose, sacrifice, satisfaction, self-sacrifice, society, survival, value, and vision

Sooner or later a democracy which is to survive has to be able to rely upon that enlargement of vision and purpose of those individuals who compose it, which means that their craving for devotion and self-sacrifice is satisfied in a democratic society on a nobler level, and with a finer recognition of the value of individual personality than is true of a national purpose of a totalitarian state under a dictator.

A Quote by Lewis H. Brown on cooperation, democracy, dictatorship, freedom, lies, order, and principles

We cannot possibly reconcile the principle of democracy, which means cooperation, with the principle of governmental omniscience under which everyone waits for an order before doing anything. That way lies loss of freedom, and dictatorship.

A Quote by Jerome Frank on democracy, dictatorship, goodwill, government, intelligence, interest, men, needs, promises, and elightenment

We want no dictatorship of physicists, as physicists. If our democracy is to realize its full promise, we want no dictatorship at all - of any species. What we want and need is the enlightened and active interest of all men of intelligence and goodwill in their government, and their participation in its functions.

A Quote by J. Michael Straczynski on army, dictatorship, force, freedom, government, learning, needs, population, power, and universe

No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand. The Centauri learned this lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

A Quote by Herbert Clark Hoover on dictatorship, paradox, power, and speech

It is a paradox that every dictator has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each dictator has suppressed all free speech except his own.
