Wisdom of the Crowd

* You might get tired of fucking things up, but that does not excuse your giving up.

* Democracy is a continuous bet on the wisdom of the crowd which serves to tip the balance to this or that side of the scale without breaking it. For the wisdom of the crowd as expressed through the democratic process favors gradual cumulative change, and can withstand setbacks. It only favors the revolutions when dealing with rigid autocratic societies where the possibility of change through cumulative reforms is mooted by the behavior of the authoritarian elite.
