Citações: Mill sobre os perigos da democracia

One of the greatest dangers (...) of democracy, as of all other forms of government, lies in the sinister interest of the holders of power: it is the danger of class legislation; of government intended for (...) the immediate benefit of the dominant class, to the lasting detriment of the whole.

Johh Stuart Mill (filósofo e economista inglês), Considerations on Representative Government, 1861.
