The Price of Survival
Insight from Jean-Francois Revel.
20th century philosopher Jean-Francois Revel: “Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time left for it to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high.”
