By way of example, the elite few have dummed down the majority through government seminaries (public schools), government missionaries (news media) and government religion (socialism).

Just because you have all the fools on your side does not make you right. And for this very reason, the American republican form of government distributes power across every county and state and within the 3 branches of the federal government. The centralization of power is the bane of republican government.

Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown

I admit I don't maybe fully understand Mr Dryden's mishaped expression here. The majority are always in error when it comes to life's summation the reason is  because of the majority's obsessive journey with  the mindless ambition to the grave. The very small, small minority try to lead us away from a lousy hole in the ground.
