O By the way the Franklin quote is some bloggers fantasy, It is widely distributed on the Internet but appears nowhere in Ben Franklin's writings.The earliest definite citations for such a statement credit libertarian author James Bovard with a similar one in the Sacramento Bee (1994): "Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner." This statement also definitely occurs in the "Conclusion" (p. 333) of his book Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994)

so is the idea here to take a famous quote and somehow use it to support your views whether it is relevant or not? All Pericles is saying is that trying to ignore politics does not protect you from it's impact. He does not mention socialism, democracy, fascism or any particular system.
