Quotable: ... democracy lies just under ...

"Americans are convinced that democracy lies just under the weight of a dictatorship, ready to open up and flower when the boulder of oppression is rolled away. But the reality is that when you overthrow a dictatorship, not democracy but anarchy lies at the ready."
Benjamin Barber, author of Jihad vs. McWorld, as quoted in Mo (September 2004)
