Bad                     Good
Lord (John Emerich Edward Dalberg) Acton
View all quotes from this author
Engrave this Quote It is bad to be oppressed by a minority, but it is worse to be oppressed by a majority. For there is a reserve of latent power in the masses which, if it is called into play, the minority can seldom resist. But from the absolute will of an entire people there is no appeal, no redemption, no refuge but treason.
-Lord (John Emerich Edward Dalberg) Acton Tell a Friend
