Tocqueville on Egalitarianism

“I want to imagine with what new features

despotism could be produced in the world:

I see an innumerable crowd of like

and equal men who revolve

on themselves without

repose, procuring

the small and vulgar

pleasures with which

they fill their souls.”


According to me

“The current concern is that our multitudes lay resting; supported by a false hope.”
