W.E.B. Du Bois: Democratic government

“The theory of democratic government is not that the will of the people is always right, but rather that normal human beings of average intelligence will, if given a chance, learn the right and best course by bitter experience.”

—W.E.B. Du Bois, educator, civil rights activist, and writer (23 Feb 1868-1963).
